The Lakme Fashion Week 2019 kickstarted today at St.Regis, Mumbai, opening with the collection of ace fashion designer Manish Malhotra.
A bi-annual fashion event that takes place in Mumbai, it is being held from August 21 to August 25.
For his collection ‘Maahrumysha’ Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif was chosen the showstopper. Wearing all black, the Barbie girl looked stunning in embellished velvet lehenga and a blouse.
Speaking on the collection, the designer said, “This show is very special for me as this is an expansive collection with diverse fabrics; in wool, cotton and silk. I’ve refreshed the wedding palette in a more millennial and modern way. The whole collection is done in muted and vintage tones which makes it modern and glamorous, yet timeless.”
Many actors including Ishaan Khattar, Dia Mirza, Khushi Kapoor, Daisy Shah and Chitrangada Singh, among others also attended the event.
Last year too the actress walked the ramp for the veteran designer with Salman Khan donning a brown lehenga with silver embellishments on it while Salman wore the classic black Manish Malhotra bandhgala suit.
