Photos of Manish Malhotra’s Collection at Delhi Couture Week 2013

Last year at Delhi Couture Week  i was actually there to witness Manish Malhotra’s collection ! I was sitting right behind K.Jo and Alia Bhatt (who at the time i thought was some kiddo in a poofy dress- her movie hadn’t released then). This time, while i wasn’t fortunate enough to attend, i did manage to get you some photo’s from Manish Malhotra’s show at Delhi Couture Week 2013. For some of you, his outfits are Bridal-Drool material, while some others would feel he overdoes the bling and ornaments on the garments. Take a look at his 2013 collection , and see for yourself !

The silhouette- a big fan of, and if you like a little bit of bling, this encrusted red anarkali might work for you!manish-malhotra-2013-bridal-collection-delhi-couture (8) manish-malhotra-2013-bridal-collection-delhi-couture (7) manish-malhotra-2013-bridal-collection-delhi-couture (6)

Love this nude anarkali lehenga with navy blue and silver detailing. I feel like every year he plays with his signature ‘Slit Style’. Last year, it was just off center towards the side and this year the slits are right at the sides.

Overall, i preferred his Delhi Couture Week 2012 showing to this current one. Maybe because that was all about corals, peaches and pinks- but a lot of those pieces i would have loved to have in my closet. While some of these pieces are gorgeous, others have way too much bling for my taste, but to each his own.

His collection was inspired by the 1930’s India- where the fashion styles had an element of Royalty ! He says he imagines a Maharani  wearing heirloom jewellery walking down a corridor with her entourage  to meet the viceroy in his Regalia. This was Manish’s take on British India.

Price Range: Since so many are asking, Manish’s Couture Pieces- lehengas etc start at about a price of 4 Lakhs and go much much further upwards. The simple anarkalis are around the 1-1.5 Lakh mark, and the cotton pieces are around the 30-50K mark.
