Ace designer Manish Malhotra’s collection at Syngergy1 Delhi Couture Week 2011 sought inspiration from Indian royalty’s fashion choices from the 1920s to 1940s. Indian princes, princesses and maharanis largely stuck to traditional Indian wear, but their style was marked by a distinct British influence for at least a couple of decades.
Bollywood actor Sonam Kapoor kicked off the show:
The colour palette for women included cherry reds and burgundys with tones of mint green, aqua, and off-whites. The heavily-embroidered lehengas and kurtas were easy and voluminous, while the highly structured hair provided a contrasting look.
The color story for menswear comprised blacks, burgundys, royal blue, beiges and gold—all very royal colours!
The final walk down the ramp with Manish Malhotra was a dazzling visual!
