The preview began with innovative real-life choreography where models entered the venue with Malhotra in a Rolls-Royce. The menswear line, as the designer described, was a blend of Indian and western couture and especially tailored for the debonair man – stylish, cool and contemporary. Interestingly, models aged 18 to 55 yrs of age will walk for this show to exemplify that ‘Style is not age bound’.

For Manish, the inspiration came from his desire to do something new, something different. From suits to bandhgalas and sherwanis, the range featured luxurious and fine tailored outfits for men. Emerald green, a shade rarely used as the central theme for a show, will be Malhotra’s main color theme.
The designer said that 2015 was a very special year for him as it marked 25 years as a costume designer and stylist in the Bollywood industry, 10 years for his fashion label ‘Manish Malhotra’ and 15 years since he first presented his first show at the Lakme Fashion Week. He disclosed that he wanted his first menswear show to be at the Lakme Fashion Week and in Mumbai, a place where he was born, where he lived and grew as a professional.
