Welcome to the Class After-Party. Dress Code: Diffuse by Manish Malhotra ONLY | Exclusive

Last year, ace designer Manish Malhotra unveiled his latest collection titled ‘Diffuse’ with an eye on the GenZ market – and who better than the cast of Class to embody his vision?

The youthful collection consists of seasonless separates and bold fusion designs that aim to capture the GenZ zeitgeist. Adding to its appeal to the younger generation, the collection is also more consciously priced as compared to his other more opulent wear. In a career spanning over three decades, Manish Malhotra’s eponymous brand has become synonymous with glamour. His outfits have been a staple on the red carpet and at industry dos. He’s also been praised for staying relevant in an industry known for its trend-based nature due to his ability to mould his aesthetic to the changing fads while retaining the essence that first shot him to the top of the fashion food chain.

Malhotra’s Diffuse collection is suffused with striking hues, multiple crossroads of colours and contours that pulsate with an after-noir glamour. Imagine the after-party after the original after-party: that’s the vibe in these stunning pictures. Exclusive, VIP and reserved for the most glamorous and edgy fashionistas. Staying true to his trademark aesthetic, Diffuse by Manish Malhotra encompasses a wide variety of staples like sequins, mesh and metallics. It’s a veritable fiesta of multi-coloured hues, bling and MM prints. The multi-hyphenate has constantly re-defined glamour in his three-decade-long career and GenZ gets to experience the full force of his mastery with the Diffuse collection.

In keeping with the vibe of Diffuse, Manish Malhotra recently dressed the cast of Netflix’s Class in his latest collection. Class, which dropped on the streaming platform on the 3rd of February was met with much praise from audiences and critics alike. The Indian adaptation of the hit series, Elite, Class managed to successfully remodel the original in the Indian context.
