Mumbai, March 20 -- Designer Manish Malhotra, along with Hollywood actor Rosario Dawson, who had donned a midnight blue crop-top with a voluminous, rose pink lehenga from the designer's latest collection, presented the Blue Runway at the ongoing Lakme Fashion Week Summer/ Resort 2015.
Apart from presenting the exquisite collection, the models also walked holding placards with positive social messages as part of WEvolve campaign.
The theme this time for Manish's new collection was 'celebrating romance and love against violence'. "I'm glad this turned out to be a magical evening for a cause," says Manish.
The highlights of the collection were floral embroidery and mirrorwork, and more importance was given to texture. Colours such as various hues of blue, powder pink and yellow formed the palette for the evening.
While the women's line was all about flowing gowns, jacket saris, off-shoulder, halter crop tops and skirts, the menswear included bandhgala jackets and long shirts with structured and easy styles.
The show was packed with a host of celebrity guests, including Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernandez, Shabana Azmi, Kajol, Huma Qureshi, Neha Dhupia, Richa Chadda, Sophie Choudry, Freddy Daruwala and Sridevi.
