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.

This is a disappointing collection. It’s so bland and not couture enough :( Prefer his last year’s collection too.


Gowthami August 5, 2013 at 8:43 am

Deepika’s navy blue lehenga is super pretty :)


Peachesandblush August 5, 2013 at 10:11 pm

I liked the contrast of the plain blue top with the embellished skirt


Shikha August 5, 2013 at 9:47 am

I like those floor length anarkali suits rest nothing too appealing

I was there for this show, and Dpad looked amazing and the set was incredible as well. Most of his pieces were a complete khichdi with net and lace and velvet together. Quite a disaapointing MM show, clothes wise. But the set more than made up for it,


mehak August 5, 2013 at 2:27 pm

ooh lucky you! Would have loved to see it!


Preeti Kaur August 5, 2013 at 12:57 pm

Jyoti August 5, 2013 at 1:19 pm

Beautiful Collection!!


Saniya August 5, 2013 at 2:50 pm

I love Deepika’s Lehnga…Just wish it was some other colour, maybe green or pink…as I don’t like navy blue much!


Supria August 5, 2013 at 3:20 pm

Love Deepika’s lehenga and the neck piece. Just not sure of the puffy long sleeves!


Peachesandblush August 5, 2013 at 10:12 pm

Hehe yeah i think he did that to go with the victorian thee, but a super short blouse would also look fab!


Tiny August 5, 2013 at 8:04 pm

Aditi@Chicorita August 5, 2013 at 8:09 pm
