Celebrated designer Manish Malhotra, effected the startling makeover of many screen scorchers in Hindi filmdom, says the Indian wedding market has evolved with the change in Bollywood’s fashion story.

“The wedding market has evolved a lot over the years through styling in movies that showcased modernity of Indian clothes,” Malhotra said.

During his 25 years as a stylist in the film industry, Malhotra has designed looks for Urmila Matondkar, Karisma Kapoor, Kajol, Rani Mukerji, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Preity Zinta, Sonam Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Deepika Padukone.

The designer feels “brides are also changing”.

“They are a lot more social media savvy and have great global influences. They want more contemporary, versatile and diversified looks,” he added.

After showcasing his collection at FDCI India Couture Week (ICW) 2016, Malhotra is now a part of the Vogue Wedding Show 2016 – a three-day exhibition which will start from Friday here.

Malhotra is “delighted to be a part of the wedding show. The response has always been overwhelming and I am really thankful to everyone for being so loving towards me and my work”.

“I am looking forward to an interactive and exciting session,” he said.

What about upcoming fashion trends for brides and grooms?

“I see the designs being more intricate, experimental and a greater respect to old craft, handloom and textile,” Malhotra said.

He came out with a talk show titled “The Manish Malhotra Show” in 2005. But there are no plans to comeback with a talk show.

“That was 11 years ago. I did 50 episodes. There have been many offers after that but I really have too much happening and cannot give the time to it,” he said.

For now, his focus is “on improving my work and changing the business of Indian fashion”.
