Couturier to the stars, designer Manish Malhotra opened Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2016 in the grandest way possible, with an off-site show in Mumbai last evening.

Following Chanel’s foot-steps from Paris Fashion Week this year, even Manish made sure all the guests present their to be a part of his glamorous evening, were given front row. Having said that, we did see some of the biggest names of the industry who came in to support Bollywood’s favourite designer while they took their seats on the front row. Neeta Ambani, Farah Khan, Dia Mirza, Sophie Choudry, Kiara Advani, Zoya Akhtar and more were spotted on the front row.

While Arjun Kapoor and Jacqueline Fernandez were the showstoppers for the night but his all time favourite muse Kareena Kapoor Khan, was also a part of the squad looking drop-dead-gorgeous in designers S/R16 collection. Manish charmed the audiences with a mix of traditional yet modern Indian couture in dreamy hues of baby pink, powder blue, mint green and sunset orange. Tailored ponchos, off-shoulder jumpsuits with Victorian trails dominated the runway last evening. His ‘Elements’ collection was also an ode to the modern grooms as we saw sharp jackets and kurtas and churidars with tailored pants.

Speaking about the collection Manish signed off by saying, ““ELEMENTS has been one of my most creatively gratifying experiences. The modern Indian bride is my muse, because there really is no point in wearing a gorgeous outfit if the bride cannot have fun in it. I wanted to showcase the expanse of possibilities that young, stylish brides- and grooms-to-be could explore for their big day.”
