Manish Malhotra unveiled his newest collection, ‘THE EMPRESS’ STORY’ at the Amazon India Couture Week.
‘THE EMPRESS’ STORY’ is influenced by the designer’s inherent passion for reviving centuries-old craftsmanship in a design story that is relevant for global consumers of couture. Each outfit in the collection presents inherently Indian details on classic Western silhouettes – marking a first for the label. The Collection celebrated the Modern Woman. From passion and intelligence to confidence and elegance, THE EMPRESS’ STORY weaves in the myriad nuances of femininity to recreate magical tales in fabric. The mise en scène was reminiscent of a luxurious cocktail soirée, which, in keeping with the ethos of the collection had a timeless, global appeal. The showing culminated with the stunning Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan in a beautiful wine velvet lehnaga with intricate embroidery. Jaya Bachchan, Aditi Rao Hydari, Kriti Sanon – wearing Manish’s creations - graced the front row.
