Aishwarya Rai Bachchan & Manish Malhotra
There is no need of an introduction for former Miss World and Bollywood Superstar - Aishwarya Rai. Words do no justice to the works of designer Manish Malhotra. Having been avidly following his workmanship, and the detail with which he does his work, it was nothing but pure joy to have been invited to his first ever fashion show in Doha.
The show was beautifully choreographed - in a way befitting to the notable designer. We were almost brought to the edge of the seat when the big chandelier started being drawn downwards towards the walkway, and almost pictured it shattering into a thousand brilliant pieces. That wildness was only left to our imagination because we soon realized it was part of the show. The curtains, and the walkway all mirrored and reflective - it was not only the clothes that came into play but, light itself in every possible way.
With a 28 year career in global fashion including being a pioneer in Bridal couture, Manish Malhotra has recently been privileged with the honor of becoming a jury member of the Oscar Awards jury.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has established herself as one of the most popular and influential celebrities in India and overseas. She was crowned Miss World in 1994 and is the first Indian actress to be a jury member of the Cannes Film Festival.
The collection that was showcased was such a treat to the eyes. Watch this little vlog I put together from the event.
