“Primrose” is an apt name for this pastel-hued line which employed appliqués and beads to create 3D textures in floral-inspired styles.

Netted overlays, sheer fabric, lace and silk were his main go-to fabrics – an inspired choice that perfectly offset the floral tones.

Manish stuck to Western wear – short summery dresses and a couple of floor-sweeping beauties.
All his models sported nude or beige peep-toe pumps and two roses each in their hair.

The collection brings to mind what a blossoming garden would look like in the hundred warm shades of the setting summer sun. It’s balmy without being heavy and fresh without sacrificing on elegance.
