COLLECTIONS Manish Malhotra

Picture a sprawling Eden-like forest—all trees and tangled vines, glowing orb lights and the scent of jasmine hanging in the air.

Forging their way through this Shakespearean setup were Manish Malhotra’s models in his ‘Blue Runway’ collection for Summer/Resort 2015.

Needless to say, shades of blue dominated—from indigo and navy to lavender and mauve—but what really stole the spotlight were the sunshine yellows and decadent gold-and-cream ensembles.

Giant embroidered roses crept across each garment, and beaded-fringe swung gently, as the models took to the runway in lehengas with crop tops, breezy resort gowns, saris and flowing long jackets over cigarette pants.

There could have been no better setting for Malhotra’s blooming roses than the lush greenery he set them amid, but he took it a step further—creating one last dramatic moment with jasmine petals raining on the models as they took their final round.
