riot of colour, lots of embellishment, heavy embroidery –- that’s what you visualize when you think of Manish Malhotra.
But, his latest collection at Fashion Week 2006, titled Freedom, was a stark surprise.
The colour white ran right through, with just hints of black and blue, and splashes of gold.
We saw the lovely Preity Zinta take to the catwalk in a dressy corset, flowing skirt and duppata-meets-stole draped around her shoulders.
Can you wear this? Corsets appear to be the flavour of the season. Go for it, especially for a dressy occasion.
