About the Speaker:
Couturier, costume stylist, entrepreneur, social media influencer and revivalist. Manish Malhotra’s prolific career spanning 27 years has seen him redefine fashion for an entire generation of Indians. Manish Malhotra started his career as a model, while studying at the Elphinstone College in Mumbai. Though he did not have formal fashion design training, Manish’s love for sketching, passion for cinema and penchant for clothes, saw him veer towards costume styling. 

He revolutionized costume designing and introduced the concept of styling in Bollywood after his first film as a designer for Juhi Chawla-starrer ‘Swarg’ A firm believer that costume was an integral part of visual story-telling, Manish clearly marked his foothold in the fashion industry by winning the first Filmfare Costume Award ever conferred for the film ‘Rangeela’. Ever since then, Manish has brought his inimitable aesthetic to costume design and styling for the country’s leading actors and style icons, including even at one point, Michael Jackson, when he visited!
