Manish To Hit The LFW Ramp With British Bulldog Inspiration
Emerging fashion designer Manish Bansal is all set to create a buzz yet again by showcasing his Winter/Festive collection inspired by British Bulldog at Lakmé Fashion Week to be held at Palladium Hotel, Mumbai from August 26.
Winter-Festive 15-16 is a revival of British Bulldog and Union Jack as a long lasting symbol. The collection draws a parallel from a historically context and expresses a more contemporary take on primitive-violent-macho image of this breed. The collection integrates the bulldog imagery in felted and embroidered forms, one is more British and the latter is more Asian, to show the coming together of techniques.
