Actor Ranbir Kapoor is all set to take the runway by storm for fashion designer Manish Malhotra. The Bombay Velvet actor will be seen playing showstopper at the ace designer’s first menswear show at the forthcoming edition of Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015.
The offsite show will take place at Mehboob Studio on August 26, closing the opening day of Lakme Fashion Week.
On Monday, Malhotra organised a special preview of his collection ‘The Gentlemen’s Club’. The preview began with models walking out of Rolls-Royce, with Malhotra looking dapper himself. On the collection, Malhotra said in a statement “The collection for Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive is for the debonair man – it’s stylish, cool and contemporary. It exudes sophisticated charm and is an extension of my couture line. In keeping with the season, ‘The Gentlemen’s Club’ collection is a festive fusion of Indian and western couture, focusing on shades of emerald green and adorned with botanical motifs. I am very happy to announce that Ranbir Kapoor will be walking for the show.”
Malhotra also said that 2015 is a very special year for him. “It marks 25 years as a costume designer and stylist in the movie industry, and a successful decade for my fashion label – Manish Malhotra. I’m very excited to showcase my first ever menswear show at Lakme Fashion Week in association with Philips, which shares a similar passion for establishing individuality, with flair. True style begins with an impeccably groomed man who just knows what looks good on him,” he added.
