Fashion Designer

Manish Malhotra’s prolific career spanning 26 years has seen him redefine fashion for an entire generation of Indians. From his work with Hindi cinema’s influential leading-ladies to launching his eponymous label in 2005, Manish Malhotra tells design stories in a language profuse with elegance, ultra-femininity and unapologetic glamour.

In 1998, Manish decided to venture into mainstream designing with his high-profile couture store 'Reverie - Manish Malhotra'. In 2005, he launched his couture label MANISH MALHOTRA. Over the years, the label’s aesthetic has evolved to bring together traditional Indian fabrics and techniques with contemporary silhouettes.

Manish Malhotra has dressed the most glamorous leading women in Hindi cinema such as Priyanka Chopra, Kajol, Karisma Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor and Deepika Padukone. One of Manish’s first international assignments was to design a custom-made traditional outfit for Michael Jackson, during the King of Pop’s visit to India in the late 1990’s. He has also styled Jean-Claude Van Damme, Reese Witherspoon, Naomi Campbell, Kylie Minogue and Jermaine Jackson and wife Halima.
