MANISH MALHOTRA
Runway Report
 

There was indelible anticipation for Manish Malhotra's showing as we waited for the staging of a glamorous collection where models would give way to Bollywood luminaries to generate buzz for Mijwan Welfare Society, which works tirelessly to empower women. Named after a village in Uttar Pradesh, Mijwan Welfare Society is spearheaded by Shabana Azmi, Namrata Goyal and Manish Malhotra with the objective of reviving the craft of Chikan embroidery and empowering local women. 

 

This year, Manish Malhotra celebrated six years of his journey with the NGO with a star-truffled showcase. The collection showcased the amalgamation of classic chikankari in modern silhouettes, renewing the vintage charm of elaborate jackets, cocktail dresses, saris, crop tops, fluid skirts and evening gowns—with rich zardozi, romantic sequins and fringes. I loved the off-shoulder metallic minidress and strapless vermillion gown with zardozi motifs. For men, there were embroidered kurta-salwars, bandhgalas and kurta-bandis, highlighting the art of chikankari.

 

"You have to believe in your vision" believes the designer and guests' response proved yet again that there is a market for his rich color and embellishment.
