Designer Manish Malhotra unveiled his newest limited edition collection titled “The Empress Story” at the Amazon India Couture Week (AICW) 2015 and who could be the better choice than beauty queen Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as the showstopper for the final show of the fashion gala.
Aishwarya looked gorgeous and stunning in his creation, and must have a look at her avatar.
The design of the collection was influenced by his passion for reviving centuries-old Indian craftsmanship. From textured fabrics, voluminous gown-like silhouettes that could be worn as an ode to ‘lehengas’, trails of exquisite silk and intricate embroidery were some of the highlights of the line.
The colour palette moved from metallic silver and antique gold to rich burgundy, old rose pink, pearl grey and coffee brown.
There were also elaborate mushroom-flower and bird motifs in delicate threadwork, bringing to life the legacy of exquisite craftsmanship that the designer is known for.
