Only Manish Malhotra Can Do This…

I always felt that designer Manish Malhotra is a better Stylist than a Designer. But then in India anybody who can lure in some Bollywood glitz becomes a designer worthy of a ‘Grand Finale’ slot. Manish Malhotra’s Grand Finale show at the Lakme Fashion Week yet again disappointed the REAL fashion writers and fashionistas. In fact the most appropriate comment I heard about Manish Malhotra’s show at LFW was, “Manish Malhotra’s  “Showstopper” wore a Vampire Prom Queen dress that even Hollywood campy horror movies would consider cheesy. Is this what goes for fashion in India? Felt like hiding my head in shame when I saw it.” Indeed that THING Kareena Kapoor wore was worse than stuff I see at the passing-out shows of many non-descript Fashion Institutes that have mushroomed all over.

Even at the Delhi Couture Week Manish Malhotra showed a collection that was a FUSION of 3 Top Designer’s Signsture styles – Rohit Bal, Sabyasachi and Anamika Khanna. If you look at the picture below closely you will definitely agree with me.

    He is such a cheesy, OTT bollywoody designer. He is not at all a grand finale’ material. LFW shud learn their real quick…

    Am no fashion writer, however I refrain from writing about Indian designers’ collections on my blog because it often ends up taking a critical tone and makes me sound like a grumpy granny. Call me crazy and a hypocrite, but the only reason I put up pictures from Manish’s show on my blog was because it gets the most hits owing to his immense popularity. His clothes on the other hand; it’s excruciating to look at. All that yardage of fabric, to which he added cleavage popping low necks to make the tents sexy, the sweeping underskirts would be great for carrying your daily belongings.

    Yes its true he pass of designs by his assistants or interns as his own..few years back there was a major show down between Manish and Surily Goel who was his assistant at that time…..and secondly Manish is very Predictive in his style..u can tell a Manish Malhotra design from a mile.
