    India Couture week is a five-day fashion gala, hosted by Fashion Design Council of India in Delhi.

    The best Desi designers will be showcasing their work at the Taj Palace Hotel.

    Manish Malhotra is set to open the fashion show on July 20, 2016.

    His extravagant designs unveil a story about the intricate craftsmanship, hence he names his collection ‘The Persian Story’.

    He has released a sneak peak of his collection on Twitter. Take a look!

    When Manish describes his collection, he says it is ‘a reinvented Indian couture line celebrating old-world embroidery and art, craft, along with ancestral Indian trends mixed with Persian influences’.

    Pakistani actor Fawad Khan says: “I set to open the collection and Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone is set to close it.”

    Deepika has walked for his collection in the past. Manish speaks of her highly:

    “Deepika for me is that actor who has single-mindedly worked towards being where she is today and improved and evolved over time.

    “She speaks the language of today and carries any kind of garment with a coolness which is very contemporary, along with grace, elegance and world charm.”

    Here is the schedule of the 2016 show:
