‘I have been often asked about what is the main thing to become a successful designer. For me, I would say right balance is very necessary if you want to be a designer, success comes with hard work. A designer needs to adapt to technology, change of client’s mind, creative aspects and environmental changes as well. Yet one need to stick to his/her belief and style also’, says Bollywood Designer Manish Malhotra.

Sharing about his own experience in designing field he said, “I have seen so many changes in my client’s choices in past few years. Now, Bride’s clothes are not choose by her family or relatives. Bride has her own mindset of what and how she wants to wear her wedding dress. I feel so happy that Brides have come up with unique and stylish choices themselves.”
Manish told, “Being a designer I have to stick to the choices my clients demand. Some families want darker and embroidered clothes. Some want to be understated.
