Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2011 Grand Finale ~ Manish Malhotra

Manish displayed his creative skills by showing garments of ultimate beauty and style. The Lakmé Grand Finale at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2011 showcased a collection that was glamorous and sophisticated, with a soul that was Indian.

The first model descended from the ceiling down the lit steps wearing a breathtaking white embellished kurta with accented wing shoulder detailing and a pink diaphanous lehenga.

What followed were the most magnificent Indian and western creations comprising swirling panelled lehengas, amazingly constructed cholis, superb saris and serene avant garde gowns. Each creation was a dream to behold as silver and resham embroidery covered the ensembles in a brilliant manner.

Rich fabrics like, lace, chiffon, silk, net, velvet in primary shades of white and candy floss pink were teamed with black, wine, gold, pale grey, metallics and cherry red. Gowns were either will-power or sexy with plunging ‘V’ necks and moulded to the body and flared into dozens of panels. Sheer net appeared for Kalidar covers, which were draped over luxuriously opulent skirts making the ensembles ideal bridal wear.

Men’s wear was formal with sherwanis, some with wide cuffs, long smock coats at times pleated or gathered - were at others times lean and layered over kurtas. The colour story was masculine with black grey, white and wine with a hint of fuchsia for collars and cuffs.

As the man behind this fantastic show took his bow, Manish Malhotra rocked down the ramp with the beautiful Kareena Kapoor in a fabulous white layered lace, silk, net gown with a shimmering bodice. and confetti bursts showered the audience, to mark the end of one of the most memorable Lakmé Grand Finales

What an end it was to Winter/Festive 2011 will be remembered for months as the night of ultimate style, glamour, beauty and couture.
