Manish Malhotra closes Lakme Fashion Week X FDCI with ‘Diffuse’
Designer Manish Malhotra brought the curtains down on the Lakme Fashion Week X FDCI with the showcase of his ‘Diffuse’ collection at the grand finale.
Lakme brand ambassador Ananya Panday and actor Aditya Roy Kumar walked the ramp for the designer as showstoppers.
Panday walked the runway wearing a hand-embroidered tassel edged gown with a scoop neck, high slit, worn with a statement trench-coat.
LFW x FDCI claims this was its biggest ever grand finale in the history of the 22-year-old platform as it saw 102 models, almost 1000 guests, and garnered 1-million views in just over 12 hours, making it the biggest fashion livestream by an Indian beauty brand.
Commenting on the show, Manish Malhotra in a statement said, “Diffuse literally Diffuse-s down the hard-to-digest terms and invests in our signature bling, bold and beautiful to be more unapologetically you. The stylish duo and our showstoppers Ananya Pandya and Aditya Roy Kapoor join the Diffuse Tribe this year as they perfectly epitomize the generational values of tomorrow.”
Ananya Panday added, “It is always a pleasure to represent Lakmé on India’s largest fashion platform, Lakmé Fashion Week X FDCI. ‘Retags’ is a concept I truly resonated with, and that combined with Manish Malhotra’s spectacular designs was so exciting to witness. Lakmé is my favourite makeup and beauty brand. I was truly thrilled to be part of this finale show that allowed me to be Unapologetically Me.”
The four-day Lakme Fashion Week organised in partnership with the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) concluded on March 12 in the city of Mumbai.
