Manish Malhotra

We always go ‘wow’ at the Lakmé Fashion Week during Manish Malhotra’s show where he dazzles the audience with his Bollywood inspired bridal collection. If you are a ‘big fat Indian shaadi’ kind of a girl, you should definitely be getting your hands on his silver and purple lehenga we are crushing on.

Including her lehenga in your trousseau is mandatory! Her blue and gold outfits are our new obsession. We love the high neck blouse with the princess sari and think it’s a must-wear if you want to be a pretty feminine kind of a bride.
