The most awaited Indian couture week has kicked off in New Delhi. The fashion crazies are out to take a look at the trend setting attires in the next five days.
It was celebrated fashion designer, Manish Malhotra who opened up the ICW 2016 on July 20 with his collection ‘The Persian story’.
The collection inspired by Persian and Iranian architecture was quite a feast to the eyes. The hot and happening Deepika Padukone and latest heartthrob, Fawad Khan dazzled the ramp with their appearance.
The show opened up with Fawad’s entry who looked no less than a prince in a long dark green velvet jacket paired with deep maroon palazzo salwars.
Models in embellished lehengas, anarkalis, sherwanis, check shirts, off shoulder gowns and sequined dresses sashayed down the floor.
Elaborate architecture, floral motifs, golden embroidery work was seen on the dresses which were displayed in bright colours of cream, gold, red, maroon, indigo, royal blue and yellow.
The show closed with the diva’s entry who wore a heavy maroon lehenga which had an off shoulder blouse and long trail bottom. Her look was completed with smokey eyes and polka choker which gave a modern, bold bridal look.
Deepika walked through the uncommon long ramp which was decorated in Persian décor. Chandeliers were put up to match the theme and Persian music was running in the background.
Deepika who started her career as a model wore the heaviest dress on ramp which was made in a span of 3 months. However, Fawad’s walk was the first in India.
Deepika’s dress was so heavy that when Manish came on stage, he had to hold on the flowing length o the dress.
The whole show managed to transport the viewers to Persian times.
