Leading designers Satya Paul and Manish Malhotra brought indian fashion to South Africa with their latest collections at the India Show. Manish Malhotra’s collection titled ‘Celebrations’ was inspired by various eras from the Mughal period to the Rajasthan royalty to contemporary bridal wear. Set in jewel tones and luxurious fabrics like velvets, antique brocades, the collection amalgamates traditional zardosi and thread work with saris, anarkalis, shararas and interpretations of these classics. What can we say, the collection was lustworthy.
Satya Paul’s collection “Zen, Zest, Zip, Zap and Zing” , on the other hand, was, hmm, interesting with plenty of prints and embroidered textures.
Except for these monstrosities! How did these “things” get on the ramp?
