Manish Malhotra opened the summer-resort 2014 edition of the Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) with his A Summer Affair collection and he roped in actress Sonakshi Sinha to walk for him in a soft and feminine attire.

The audience gave his collection a standing ovation as Sonakshi walked the ramp in a midnight blue ensemble here Tuesday night.

Malhotra said his line is "influenced by the romanticism that exists in today's day and age."

"Summer 2014 for me is about the feelings and emotions this modern day romance evokes," he said.

The designer incorporated colours like pink, powder blue, beige and ivory along with navy and grey on different prints and embroideries. From zip saris and summer skirt lehengas with pockets, to dress-styled kurtas and easy slim pants, the collection is apt for fashion forward youngsters. 

The men's collection introduced print on print and different textures in contemporary Indian jackets. Sherwanis were overruled by bandis, and kurtas got a makeover as shirt kurtas by the designer in his latest range.

The front row was completely packed with some known faces from tinsel town - Kangana Ranaut, Kajol with sister Tanisha Mukherjee, Sonali Bendre, Urmila Matondkar, Ameesha Patel, Zarine Khan and Zayed Khan, Lisa Haydon, Sophie Choudry, Esha Gupta, Richa Chaddha, Swara Bhaskar, Tusshar Kapoor, Punit Malhotra and Hard Kaur.
