FASHION

MANISH MALHOTRA

He can be credited for

revolutionising the fashion

scene in Indian cinema or

Bollywood, envisioning a

look for the character in the

movie instead of just the

actor. Malhotra has styled

for over 1,000 films and is

credited

with

redefining

and modernising Bollywood

costume design, while his

high couture label launched

in 1998 has earned him a

place in mainstream fashion.

Malhotra’s style is effortlessly

luxurious and contemporary,

while still being distinctly

desi and fuses traditional

Indian colours, fabrics and

embroidery.

ndia’s fashion aesthetic has never

been known for its subtlety, but

for being big, bold and bright.

Indians love colours, prints and

embellishments. That’s until a

brigade of designers came forward to

perpetuate a new sartorial idiom. They

would change the way Indians dressed

at home and around the world, helping

make Indian fashion a global movement.
