He’s the favourite designer for desi divas when it comes to weddings- be it on the silver screen or in real life. Celebrating his grand success of 25 years of captivating couture wear, designer Manish Malhotra showcased a fresh new collection at the end of Day 1 at the ongoing Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2015 in Mumbai.

The ‘Blue Runway’ collection was presented in association with the WEvolve Campaign (with the World Bank) in an effort to draw attention to gender-based violence. And with his design, spirit and the message put through, the designer set a new benchmark. Speaking to MAIL TODAY, the designer shared, “The Manish Malhotra woman is one who’s smart, wears Indian wear with a lot of style and is in tune with international standards. To add variety, the dupatta and scarf is replaced by the jacket without taking away the femininity.” “Indigo blue, ivory, yellow are the main colours for my collection; yellow is a huge colour this year,” he added.Downloads90 kareena-kapoor-khan-lakme-fashion-week
