Full Biodata and Successful Assignments

Malhotra who is better known as the makeover king for such style icons as Urmila Matondkar and Karisma Kapoor, recently launched his pret collection to a select gathering.

Malhotra's collection, titled the Enchanted Ensemble, has been inspired by the Shakespearean comedy, A Midsummer Night's Dream. Malhotra, who isn't much of a reader, confessed that on a visit to London he came across some couplets from the comedy and was inspired to create the line. "I was charmed by the play's sense of whimsy and rhyme, of freedom and flowering. This collection comes with all the breeziness and romance of a Shakespearean work," he said.

Given the inspiration, Malhotra has steered clear of bold colours like black and red and opted for pastel shades like lilacs, lavenders, whites, creams, pink and lemon instead. These colours have been splashed on sensual crepes, georgettes, nets, silks, khadi and jute.

And most of the outfits have embellishments in the form of intricate chikan work, resham work, cut work and embroidered patches worked over with beads and iridescent sequins. Malhotra has put together short kurtas with stoles, hip-length tops, loose knit shirts, silk corsets and lycra trousers for women and kurtas, kurta shirts, full shirts, short shirts, jackets and drawstrings for men.

"This is the first time I have created a collection of such mammoth volume - a hundred outfits each for men and women," said Malhotra. Modelling the clothes at the launch were names like Waluscha D'Sousa, Reshma Bombaywalla and Tapur Chatterjee among others, and lending support to Malhotra were all his good friends from the upper echelons of Mumbai society.

Apart from the Bollywood brigade also present on the occasion was ace designer Hemant Trevedi - said to be Malhotra's arch rival - admiring the collection. With this collection Malhotra has managed to pull off a another makeover - his own - for there's nothing Bollywood about it.

Amongst the many hues of the ongoing Fashion Week, Manish Malhotra seems to have seen red over some guests who skipped his show.

Apparently, on Tuesday, the team of Action Replayy, a film that Manish has designed costumes for, decided to skip his show for designer Neeta Lulla's. Neeta's presentation was just after Manish's and no, the programme itinerary was not pre-planned.

It turns out that the cast members Akshay Kumar, Aditya Roy Kapoor, Ranvijay and producer-director Vipul Shah had all taken front-row seats at the Neeta Lulla show.

Our source said, "Manish has designed the entire retro look in the film Action Replayy however none of the cast members came to watch his show. Manish was obviously upset. Apparently, the leading lady of the film Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who was not in town at the time, urged her team members to go and support her close friend Neeta Lulla."


As Preity Zinta, Rani Mukherjee, Priyanka Chopra and other Bollywood belles looked on expectantly, their favourite filmi designer delivered true to form on the ramp.

Teaming up with cellular service provider Aircel, couturier Manish Malhotra began his showing with an impassioned plea about tiger conservation on behalf of his sponsors and then proceeded to put on a dazzling display in their signature colours -- red and blue.

Model Tinu Verghese opened the show with arms outstretched to reveal a wispy, flowing ghagara choli in all its free-flowing glory. Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai will be walking the ramp for designer Manish Malhotra at the upcoming third edition of the HDIL India Couture Week.

"Beautiful Aishwarya is going to be the showstopper at my couture week show," Malhotra posted on micro-blogging site Twitter.

The designer, who has worked on Aishwarya's looks for the mega-budget Endhiran and Action Replayy, is known to have given makeovers to many actresses, including Karisma Kapoor and Rani Mukerji.

He will be opening the couture week, starting Oct 6-10.

The designer says he will be showcasing 55 different outfits and emerald will be the dominant colour in his collection. "Cinema has been my being for almost two decades now," says Bollywood fashion designer Manish Malhotra.

That said, the couturier picks six stars who he feels will make the most impact in his latest creations.

Malhotra is presently putting a new collection together for an upcoming Fashion Week in the city (starting September 17).

Describing his latest work as extremely Indian but crafted in contemporary styles, he adds, "As it is the festive season, I am settling for traditional wear but with lots of fun and trying to make it funky."

Silhouettes were harem pants, salwars, sherwanis, lehengas and kalidar kurtas. Models were also seen flaunting saris and Jodhpur jackets in brocade and velvet combinations.
