An ode to the #ManishMalhotraBride and #ManishMalhotraGroom, Manish Malhotra Vows (@manishmalhotravows) celebrates the auspicious union of marriage and chronicles memorable moments of brides and grooms in remarkable Manish Malhotra ensembles.
Bride Aarti Arora stuns in a dual tone oyster gold raw silk gown, with an exaggerated trail and tulle draped sleeves, embroidered with pewter sequins in multiple sizes and shapes to create a dramatic bold leaf formation paired with a starburst scatter of sequins.
Bride Pooja Talluri is seen wearing a blush rose pink Manish Malhotra creation. The gorgeous georgette lehenga set depicts hand embroidered window motifs with floral inserts inspired by the palatial palaces of Jaipur. Embroidered in multiple hues of silver and pewter, the lehenga features a mix of traditional zardosi work with contemporary sequins and gem-cut Swarovski crystal embellishments to add a touch of glamour, making it a perfect pick for multiple occasions.
On her D-day, Bride Shania Grewal donned a hand embroidered ivory georgette lehenga featuring signature geometric chikankari work in partnership with the Mijwan welfare society. The outfit is further embellished with navy blue sequins and crystals, to accentuate the intricate thread-work. Teamed with a hand embroidered tulle blouse and shoulder drape, the piece also showcases geometric motifs, crystals and bugle beads.
The Manish Malhotra groom, Arvind Grewal is wearing a raw silk geometric hand embroidered bandi with a textured organza kurta and an ivory aligarhi, to compliment his beautiful bride-to-be.
Bride Aishwarya Yadav chose a traditional blood red French velvet lehenga set, paired with a tulle head veil and shoulder drape, embroidered in bold tassel artwork and heritage architecture-inspired motifs and finished off with multiple borders. The ensemble features splendid champagne gold mukesh embroidery and zardosi work, further embellished with stones and metallic sequins.
Bride Anisa Mendiratta has donned a silver-grey lehenga set with Kashmiri thread-work embroidery, highlighting floral cascading motifs. The elaborate fish scale trail has been further embroidered in elegant sequins, pearls and crystals. The gorgeous lehenga is paired with a delicate scalloped tassel blouse embroidered in pearls, crystals and bugle beads; and a dupatta featuring signature Manish Malhotra tassels on the ends.
To compliment his bride, groom Aniket is wearing a classic navy blue Manish Malhotra sherwani with suave velvet accents and a statement leopard motif.
Bride Gaisu Bhasin opted for a ruby red French velvet lehenga, featuring bold window motifs and floral artwork inserts. The opulent ensemble has been hand embroidered in the traditional technique of mukesh or badla work, wherein a fine, flattened metal ribbon is used to intricately embroider the fabric. To add a signature Manish Malhotra touch to the outfit, the badla embroidery has been raised to create a three-dimensional effect, further embellished with pure Swarovski stones and crystals, and a dash of metallic sequins.
Such a piece—showcasing skilled craftsmanship and endless hours of work—can take between 4500 to 5000 man hours to curate to perfection. The entire process of making a garment of such magnitude—in this case with a trail of over 6 feet!—has to be scrutinized and executed carefully, from start to finish.
