Replacing front row seats with virtual settings, the six-day fashion soiree at the first-ever digital India Couture Week 2020, organized by FDCI was a new experience of storytelling through the medium of fashion. Playing with the digital theme, designers explored different segments of presenting their collections via fashion film.
Closing the show with an epic finale, designer Manish Malhotra presented us with his collection taking a leaflet out of the bygone era.’ Titled ‘Ruhaniyaat’, the collection was a tribute to our diverse heritage and soulful artistry of the Indian craftsmen from the eras gone by.
Malhotra’s collection hit all the right notes with his train lehengas, peplum kurtas and shararas along with floor-length anarkalis.
The colour palette ranged from popping yellows to icy blues and soothing pastels with lots of zardosi work and embellishments on it.
Eye-popping matha-patti, hath-phool, raani haar and other statement jewels from Manish's jewellery collection highlighted the grandeur of the bygone era and added a dose of regalia to this collection.
Sherwanis, anarkalis paired with velvet shawls, turbans and twirling angrakhas with extravagant detailing on sleeves, men showcased umpteen options, perfect for the festive season.
Showstopper Janhvi Kapoor was a vision to behold in her intricately embroidered train lehenga teamed up with regal jewels and a sheer dupatta that served as a veil.
Exuding ‘nazakat of Awadh and vibrance of Punjab’, Manish’s collection was indeed, ‘a celebration of life’
