Manish Malhotra's collection is inspired by the natural beauty and flora from the Kashmir Valley. Pleated soft tulle gowns and flowy lehengas were presented in light pink, powder blue and mint green - colours reminiscent of a Kashmiri landscape
However, the spotlight of the collection was on the exquisitely crafted details. 3D, applique embroidery of flowers in a vibrant palette nestled amidst traditional Kashmiri threadwork to create the perfect coming together of modern and classic influences. There were sequinned blouses and tops with high-collars and accents of light feathers and bursts of pearls added a sense of drama to traditional outfits
Billowy skirts in luscious silks were paired with dupattas in soft organza and lined with pearl-drops lent a dreamy aura to the ensembles. Pictured: Nushrat Bharucha

Manish Malhotra said, "With this line, we have delved to bring out the beauty of juxtapositions. The collection has been inspired by Kashmir - a land that rises out of snowy winters and blooms to reveal the most glorious palette of colours."
He further added, "Then and now; Indian and international; light and colour - every outfit in the collection marries distinct elements in a unique interpretation."
"The year 2018 marks 13 years to the Manish Malhotra label. With every passing year, our design language is taking on a younger, fresher, more international voice," Malhotra said in a statement
