Indian couturier, Manav Gangwani’s show was entitled ‘Le’amoureuse’ or the beloved in English. He really should have stuck with English as the French is grammatically incorrect and has, incidentally, been widely re-printed with the same error across other media. I know this is a fashion review not a French lesson but if you’re going to have pretensions, at least Google your French.

Back to the collection… The show was set in a floral garden with a long winding catwalk. An hour late, the audience had to wait longer still while an artist made a live painting to introduce the collection. Sensual, vibrant, romantic, elegant, feminine…the entire thesaurus was in the gushing accompanying press release.

It was a lovely collection with a pretty colour palette comprising amongst other shades, peachy coral and dark purple. Bollywood star, Kangana Ranaut wore a gown for the designer that reportedly weighed 30kg. What a workout!
