Mumbai, March 6 (IANS) It was a breather from the usually poker faced models seen on the ramp as designer Manish Malhotra managed to bring out the lighter side of their lives by making them flirt with each other on the Lakme Fashion Week runway here Saturday.
Both male and female models sashayed down the runway winking, poking, flirting, hugging and passing comments on each other while the latest hit ‘Uff Teri Ada’ from ‘Karthik Calling Karthik’ was being played in the background.
At the end of the show, all the models came together on the ramp and did a jig and Manish soon joined them.
It was not just models who were having a gala time with their sexy and sensual act, the jam-packed audience too were enjoying the chemistry among them.
‘The chemistry of these models on the ramp was brilliant. The whole essence of Manish’s show came alive with their act. The music too was brilliant and the show was choreographed very well,’ Bollywood actress Urmila Matondkar told IANS after the show.
‘The best thing is that the collection is so wearable,’ she added.
Along with Matondkar, Bollywood stars like Dino Morea, Raveena Tandon and Celina Jaitley were in the audience to support Manish.
For the first time, Manish’s collection was minus any bling and presented a true spring/resort collection for fashion lovers.
The collection had kurtis teamed with leggings and stockings, transparent salwars, smart dresses in digital prints and the material he used was satins, nets, crepe and georgettes.
The colour palette was vibrant as usual – starting from pink to yellow to golden to beige to white to green.
Manish confessed that he is fond of colours and his fascination for colours will never go away.
Talking about his collection Manish said: ‘There is a myth that only western tunics and floory dresses make for a resort wear collection. I love my tradition and through this line, I have blended modernity with tradition for this collection.’
