Manish Malhotra unveiled his summer couture 2018 line on Saturday in Pune. And the showcase had Radhika Apte, Nushrat Bharucha, Aditi Rao Hydari and Sophie Choudry as showstoppers.
"The year 2018 marks 13 years to the Manish Malhotra label. With every passing year, our design language is taking on a younger, fresher, more international voice," Malhotra said in a statement.

Malhotra revealed that his collection was inspired by the natural beauty and flora from the Kashmir Valley.
Pleated soft tulle gowns and flowy lehengas were presented in light pink, powder blue and mint green - colours reminiscent of a Kashmiri landscape.

However, the spotlight of the collection was on the exquisitely crafted details. 3D, applique embroidery of flowers in a vibrant palette nestled amidst traditional Kashmiri threadwork to create the perfect coming together of modern and classic influences.
There were sequinned blouses and tops with high-collars and accents of light feathers and bursts of pearls added a sense of drama to traditional outfits.
