The ace designer closed Day Two of the Lakme Fashion Week with a stunning creation.

It was ivory magic on the ramp at the end of Day Two of the Lakme Fashion Week here in Mumbai. Manish Malhotra closed the day with a stunning spring-summer collection. The Collection featured summer colours aqua green, powder blue and ivories that cast a spell on the ramp.

The label that has adopted 45 girl child workers from Mijwan in Uttar Pradesh for a year sought inspiration from their Chikankari embroidery. Manish's collection also used Kashmiri embroidery that he sourced from Srinagar and Jammu extensively.

While Manish did not have a showstopper, Sameera Reddy, Kareena Kapoor, Amrita Arora, Sophie Choudry and Kunal Kapoor were among the celebs who watched the show.
