A variety of collar details including peter pan, polo necks and Manish Malhotra’s signature low cut back with elaborate ivory thread-work were teamed with vintage shoes in old gold. Vintage golden hues paved way for rich jewel tones of ruby and old emerald. The menswear range consisting of bandhgalas and sherwanis with exquisite hand embroidery were pristinely tailored.

Bollywood starts including Huma Qureshi, Urmila Matondkar, Aditya Roy Kapoor and Alia Bhatt walked the runway for this celebrated fashion designer.
