Manish Malhotra’s Mijwan collection this season (Indian Evening Wear) for Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week will see the return of earthy, subdued tones like Ivory,burnt Orange, Crème, dull shades of Red, Greens, Pink and the likes.
The collection embraces the traditional but popular embroidery work – Chikankari. The intrinsic needlework work done exclusively by the Mijwan girls adopted by Manish. The embroidery gets its effect from the variety of stitches and different grades of threads used to form the beautiful patterns.
This, teamed with the stunning and immaculate designs by Manish have been instrumental in creation of some exquisite ensembles. Needless to add, there are heavy traces of Manish Malhotra’s unique style of bridging yesterday with tomorrow.
Manish Malhotra says, “The WIFW 2012 collection displays the convoluted and chic Chikankari work
done by the women of Mijwan, exclusively for us. The presentation of traditional Indian crafts in a
contemporary modern outlook is something we are proud to bring to our audiences.” The past 2 years of the Mijwan show in Mumbai has seen great success with actors like Hrithik Roshan, Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra among others walking the ramp. This year also had Mary Kom, Nita Ambani and a few film directors grace the ramp.
Parineeti Chopra walked for Manish Malhotra today for WIFW Spring/Summer 2013 while Shabana Azmi opened introduced the collection to the viewers.
