Glamorous luminaries united for epic cover



The fashion industry is much more expanded now and innovative designs are displaying through great celebrities. By the expansion of industry, competition is also increased and designers make more efforts to promote them and chose big stars for promotion. And if five most admired luminaries represent single designers instead of one celebrity?

Five of them, of course, are fabulous.

Beautiful performers Kajol, Alia Bhatt, Kareena and Karisma Kapoor and Sridevi come into view on the Vogue cover wearing clothes of Malhotra ensembles.

This year Indian fashion designer commemorated 25 years in the fashion business and earned himself — or rather, his clothes — a spot on Vogue India’s cover, which is the Indian edition of the monthly fashion and lifestyle magazine.

The fashion designer was telling to the Vague, which is the 17th international edition of Vogue and the first edition in South Asia, about his initial steps in the fashion industry in India “I have been working here since the time when I was 20-year-old. I was not a child who hung out in college cafes. At 19, I saved up money from my modeling gigs and travelled abroad for the first time, to Bangkok and Singapore. Throughout that time, I had my first brush with fashion as a designer-cum-sales-boy at a small boutique called Equinox. I also used my time there to do a lot of sketching and learn how to drape on mannequins.”

Manish Malhotra is one of the most successful Indian fashion designers and associated with Bollywood glamour and the films. Malhotra admitted that “I was for all the time much enthralled by Hindi movie’s actresses and their multicolored outfits… There were times during my teen years when I would have seen 2-3 films a day, down for the count my sister-in-law with me. Even at age six, I had a judgment that which sari or dupatta my mother should dress in.”
