Malhotra showcased an unusual bridal collection, which moved away from using the traditional red colour symbolic of a wedding to beige, off-white, olive green and coffee browns. "My collection is about a bride who walks out of her own wedding to a better future, to a positive tomorrow because she feels its not the right thing for her," Malhotra, who received a thunderous applause for the collection, told mediapersons after the show.
