Anushka Mulchandani , 30 Mar 2016

They told us to expect something different and they weren’t lying. When we got a glimpse of Manish Malhotra‘s Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort ’16 collection ‘Elements’ last week, we noticed it wasn’t like any of his previous collections. It didn’t take too long to love the clothes and when we saw all of them last night, all that lusting increased tenfold. Here are 5 things you need to see from the show.

1. The venue was spectacular

The show was held at Mehboob Studios. A great white tree was set up in the corner and paper birds were suspended from the ceiling. But you need to see it to actually understand it.

2. The clothes weren’t like anything you’ve seen before

Sure he has his lehengas and saris but this season, Manish created cocktail dresses, gowns, jumpsuits, overlapped trousers, off-shoulder dresses and everything a summer bride and her friends would love.
