Manish has used intricate thread work, mirroring the Parsi gara, on soft and flowing fabrics for his collection The Blue Fashion Runway presented by WEvolve. The Blue Fashion Runway represented fashion for a cause promoting a global social message of gender equality and prevention of gender based violence. This display of fashion for a cause left everyone awestruck!

The outfits are highlighted with jewellery by Anmol Jewellers. The colour palette this season is dominated by hues of blue from powder to midnight, with bold touches of variations of yellow reflecting the promise of a bright future.

The women’s line includes summer flowy gowns, jacket-saris, off shoulder and halter crop tops and skirts as an ode to the lehenga, with embroidery giving a 3D effect to light fabrics. And men’s line has bandh-galas in light fabrics and flowy silhouettes.

I just loved the generous use of tassels and off shoulders in his new collection. It has added the fun element to the entire collection.

Many Bollywood celebs attended the show to support the cause like Kajol, Deepika Padukone, SriDevi, and Jacqueline Fernandez among others. But Kapoor sisters were missed at the event.

For the first time in Manish’s association with LFW, the show was organised offsite in the old world ambiance of the Great Eastern Home – a sprawling home décor store featuring unique and worldly furniture. I have been to this store and it spells magic for the people who love vintage home décor.

Manish personally chose this venue to present his collection.
