Uncharacteristically Manish Malhotra’s grand finale at Aamby Valley India Bridal Week had no celebrity show stoppers but as per the PR note the clothes managed to hold their own, “Having worked earlier in the season with ruby red and blue sapphire and then the new emerald green jewel tones for mens and womens wear; Manish moved to the final fashion accent with pink tourmaline.” I didn’t even know that was a color!
Tapur wore a green velvet corset teamed with a maroon lehenga, Deepti wore a tiered crinoline black and red skirt, Indrani wore grey long sleeved kalidar ensemble with glittering yoke and sleeve and Iris was draped in shades of pink net and chiffon for a swirling angarkha. The finale of the show was Candice in a stunning green long sleeved velvet heavily encrusted crystal and zardozi jacket teamed with a layered lehenga.
Men’s wear was sophisticated with black sherwanis, grey green shaded silk jackets, striped ivory kurtas many with selective embroidery and were all worn with billowy salwars, Turkish pants or cowled churidars. (more pix here) xoxo
