Manish Malhotra open edthe fashion week with his collection Ruhaaniyat and Kartik Aaryan turned showstopper for the designer.

The collection, a tribute to the artisans and craftsmen of India, celebrates 10 years of the designer's association with the Mijwan Foundation.

'Ruhaaniyat is my tribute to all the artisans and craftsmen of our country who have left the fingerprints of their art onto our heritage culture,' says Manish.

'It's about the eternal soul of the craft from two culturally rich regions -- the vibrance of Punjab and the nazakat of Awadh -- and how it continues to live on even today.'
