Manish Malhotra’s showstopper

Posted on Monday, 13 August 2012 by in Fashion


Katrina Kaif was the showstopper for Bollywood designer, Manish Malhotra at the Delhi Couture Week…

Karan Johar, Madhur Bhandarkar, Satish Kaushik, Alia Bhatt, Shabana Azmi, Satish Kaushik and Shweta Bachchan Nanda were all  front row to see Katrina dressed in an ivory and golden lehenga heavily embroided

When asked if she would like to wear a similar one on her wedding day, Katrina said: “I have no idea. As the time changes, you like different things. There was a time when I was very fond of green. This is a muted colour. So you have to take it in relation with when the time comes. I don’t know when that time will come.”

However, she will not wear something to heavy:  “I wouldn’t be wearing this because it’s very heavy. The work on this is very heavy. It has taken many months. It weighs about 10 kilos. But I love Indian clothes. I love the elegance of it.”

Recalling her modeling days, Katrina said, “I always enjoy seeing the models, the clothes on the ramp. It’s always fun. When I used to be on the ramp as a model eight years ago, it always used to be in a certain pace. You had three seconds to put on your clothes and you’re out there, running. It feels very very different.”


Bollywood praises Manish Malhotra

“The show was fantastic and I think this was Manish’s best show ever. I think what he presented today was spectacular,” said Karan.

Alia said: “This is my first fashion show that I attended in my life and I am just mesmerised with the collection. I love Manish’s clothes. It was just beautiful.”

Manish showcased 20 select couture items; an exquisite collection that speaks about diverse timeless vintage styles conquered by extensively embroidery, applique work and floral techniques. Pink, coral, deep red and mango yellow are the colors dominated the show.

Explaining the motivation behind his creation, Manish Malhotra said: “I have drawn inspiration from the classic styles of the 1960′s and the 1970′s of India. The collection is soft, elegant and vintage, reminiscent of the timeless beauties of the era.”

On choosing Katrina, Manish said, “Katrina is someone who is very charming and beautiful. She looks great in Indian clothes. Also, she likes old world charm and that’s what she represented though my collection.”
