Romance unfolds on the runway with blush pinks, bold prints, tulle and lace at the opening show of Lakme Fashion Week S/R 2014. Manish Malhotra showcase’s his
“ Summer Affair” collection and yet again proves as to why he own’s the fashion industry. The traditional yet contemporary collection was a mix of kurta-dresses, zipped sari’s and his traditional flowing lehenga’s teamed with crop-tops. For men we saw a lot of tonal outfits, especially in white and pink.

With an almost surreal setup on ramp, Manish Malhotra kicked off this annual event chapter with drama on every second of the show. Surprisingly demure, the ensembles were non-fussy and stylishly classy comprising of subtle palettes ranging from peaches, tans and moving on to the classic black & white. This contemporary yet feminine collection is a must-watch and it definitely left the audience mesmerized. At last the show ended with Sonakshi Sinha as his celebrity showstopper, looking dazzling on ramp in a black & white creation.
If there is any way to open a Spring Summer Fashion Week then Manish Malhotra was deemed as the perfect one for it.
