The story of a model-turning-designer doesn’t always excite. But when that model turns out to be the best designer in all of Bollywood—that’s news for sure. And that’s how his story started.
Manish first got his taste of Bollywood when he bagged the role of costumer designer for the Juhi Chawla starrer ‘Swarg’. A small start to something big—scratch that—something massive!
Things eventually started to look up as he went on to win the IIFA for Best Costume for Mohabbatein, Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham and Kal Ho Naa Ho—just two of the many blockbusters he’s worked on.
His Bollywood fame seemed to have extended to the other side of the globe because he was now styling and designing for Hollywood celebs such as Demi Moore, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell—and Michael Jackson too!
Today, after over 25 years of accolades and fame, Manish Malhotra still remains a humble man, true to his aesthetic—while his designs continue to be lavish, extravagant and every bit resonant of bridal dreams.
