Ace fashion designer Manish Malhotra exhibited his most recent collection “The Persian Story” at the FDCI India Couture Week 2016 and celebrities Deepika Padukone and Fawad Khan turned to be the ideal showstoppers for the collection.
With the Pakistani actor Fawad Khan walking the runway the first time in India, the show had to be special. He was welcomed to the ramp by loud cheers along with whistles when he made his lavish entry in a velvet finished dark bottle green kurta along with a strong maroon palazzo-pajama.
From Cocktail to Sangeet, Wedding to Reception – this specific range of collection offers some thing for every tiny detail and for every type of bride. Architecture of Persia, unique embroidery depicting the flora and fauna and style aspects from the royals who dominated the great lands of Persia – the collection was an absolute delight.
The colour palette moved from cream, gold, red, indigo, brown maroon, royal blue to yellow. Designer Manish Malhotra tried to replicate the magic of Persia by replicating the traditional marble motifs, well-known Persian chandeliers which added much more spunk to the overall event.
The very much in-trend cold shoulder and off shoulder style showcased extensively throughout the women’s line.
Not just the designs and styles, even the set was a sight to behold with jali, flowers, huge lamps and a spectacular chandelier contributing to the mood. The Persian music playing moved the crowd to a magical land.
Deepika, who was chosen to close the fashion show for Designer Manish Malhotra, surprised the audience as she appeared ravishing in a stunning off shoulder blouse, with delicate gold embroidery and a long-trailed lehenga. The “Bajirao Mastani” celeb also wore a polki-pearl choker and a hath-phool from Hazoorilal by Sandeep Narang.
