India fashion designer Manish Malhotra associates with Etihad Airways at LFW in August 24 in Mumbai

India fashion designer Manish Malhotra is presenting a bespoke collection in association with Etihad Airways on day-1 of the Lakmé Fashion Week (LFW) which begins August 24 in Mumbai.

His new collection spotlights Indian craftsmanship combined with modern silhouettes and the designer will showcase his signature embroidery work with textured colours meshing with subtle shimmer and sparkle.

“On show will be ensembles and handcrafted evening wear that will make a trousseau special for every moment surrounding a wedding,” LFW show organisers said.

"I am delighted to be partnering with Etihad as two future forward brands come together, this will be the very first fashion show that will give viewers an experience beyond frontiers, space and time,” Malhotra said.

This is the second designer collaboration for Etihad Airways after working with the Oscar de la Renta fashion house in Australia earlier this summer. (AR)
