Manish Malhotra’s Couture Finale

Manish Malhotra PCJ Delhi Fashion Week Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika

Couturier Manish Malhotra needs no introduction.  Whilst Manish was inspired by the princely states and regalia of the 1930s, contemporary royalty in the form of Shah Rukh Khan and Bollywood princess Deepika Padukone walked the ramp for the designer. The beautifully coiffured hair underlined the inspiration with silhouettes and embroidery echoing the splendour of Indian – European architecture.  French shoe designer Christian Louboutin worked closely with Manish Malhotra for his Couture show.

The cross-cultural ties created a very unique genre of fashion and culture – an old-world mix of traditional Indian motifs, and the influences of British culture on the affluent Indian lifestyle.  If you want to see references, hop along to the South Asia room in the V & A Museum, London.  Fabrics included rich velvets, textured silks and Chantilly lace.

The palette of this 1930s-inspired couture collection is coloured with saturated, jewel like shades and tints of red, royal blue, mustard, olive, beige and ochre and this added to the vintage appeal of the outfits.
