Manish Malhotra Neon Collection


Bollywood – there is no better word that can come to your mind when you hear the name Manish Malhotra. In 1990, when Manish stepped into the Indian film industry, the country’s fashion sense was in for a radical makeover. Bollywood became the look book for fashion enthusiasts among the masses, which eventually trickled down to inspire Indians from all walks of life. Much of the credit for this heightened fashion consciousness would undeniably go to Manish Malhotra and his exciting Bollywood designs. Manish Malhotra’s exquisite ensembles are coveted for the rich Indian colours, textures and craftsmanship that make them unique and priceless. Under his label, Manish has showcased a number of collections that have been inspirations for fashion trends in India. Here, we will look at one of his recent collections that brought a neon revolution to our wardrobes.

2013 was all about neon – we saw the spring/summer collections in bright hues of pinks, greens and yellows ruling ramps all over the world. Eye popping acid colours were the palette for the global fashion. From all-over neon-to-neon prints and borders, this summer was brighter than ever. The Fall / Winter has a similar story to tell – neon stayed on to brighten up the traditional neutrals and blacks. Every brand had a unique take on the year’s big trend – so did Manish Malhotra, which he showcased at Lakme India Fashion week 2013.

Keeping up with his signature style of contemporary Indian designs, Manish Malhotra stunned us with SareesLehengas, Kurtas, Tunics and Anarkalis in splashes of neon. While some of manish malhotra collection were just a play of colours, others were adorned with detailed embroidery and other embellishments. One of the most recognizable ensembles from this collection has to be the neon green, and orange Saree graced on the ramp by Bollywood diva, Priyanka Chopra.
