After experimenting with gold coins and coral, designer Manish Malhotra has brought out an all-white collection, titled Freedom, to showcase at the Lakme Fashion Week 2006.
As far as the theme is concerned, the designer says he’s inspired by the soul-liberating philosophy of Sufism.
Says Malhotra, “My clothes celebrate the spirit of the modern woman who does not carry the baggage of accepted norms to look beautiful".
It’s all about tapping the natural world and getting tuned to world music — that’s Malhotra’s mantra this year. “I’m very fond of Sufi music. And I have used a few Abida Parveen tracks for the ramp shows,” he adds.
