Fashion has an inseparable relationship with Bollywood, and at this year’s upcoming edition of a fashion week in the Capital, the film frat is all set to take on the runway.
Designer Manish Malhotra, who is opening the India Couture Week will also have a B-town biggie walking for him.
Actor Deepika Padukone will be closing his show on July 20, as he kickstarts the five-day event.
“Deepika for me is that actor who has single-mindedly worked towards being where she is each day, and improved and evolved with time. She speaks the language of today and carries any kind of garment with a coolness which is very contemporary, along with grace, elegance and old-world charm,” says Manish Malhotra on choosing her as the showstopper.
“It’s a reinvented Indian couture line celebrating old-world embroidery and art and craft, along with ancestral Indian trends mixed with Persian influences,” adds Malhotra, describing his collection, The Persian Story.
