Indian fashion designer Manish Malhotra, who has designed for leading Indian actresses, now wants to showcase his label in Pakistan.
"Ten years ago, I was part of a show in Karachi but that was when my label was relatively new. I would love to showcase again in Pakistan now," he said, reports Dawn, Pakistan's leading English daily.
Malhotra added that he has roots in Pakistan as his mother is from Sargodha while his father is from Rawalpindi.
Speaking about his work, every Bollywood star and starlet wishes to be dressed by Manish, as does every high-profile, Bollywood-smitten bride in India and beyond. To the designer, he makes clothes "that are timeless classics".
