Mumbai  – Designer Manish Malhotra will open the summer-resort 2014 edition of Lakme Fashion Week (LFW), starting in Mumbai March 12.

Bollywood’s fashion has come to enjoy a couture status because of Malhotra’s magic over the past years. His trendsetting creations have always been cherished by the fashion community.

There will be a robust line-up of 98 designers who will participate at the LFW summer-resort 2014, said a statement.

Some of the established designers who will be a part of the fashion extravaganza are Neeta Lulla, Tarun Tahiliani, Anju Modi, Shehlaa Khan, Rahul Mishra, Anita Dongre and accessory designer Mawi, who will put together a show titled “Indian Odyssey” with designer Gaurav Gupta.

Mawi, a Britain-based accessory designer, will return to her homeland after 12 years of establishing the MAWI brand in London. Born in Manipur, Mawi returns to her Indian roots with a spectacular debut show at LFW sharing the ramp with Gupta.

Ministry of Textiles will present designer Krishna Mehta’s show for Indian Textile Day.
