One of India’s most loved designers meets one of the world’s most beautiful women—what’s not to love about this equation? In case you don’t know it already (and we really don’t know how that’s possible), Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been playing muse to Manish Malhotra for years now. Whether it’s in films, on runway shows or for red-carpet appearances, their partnership has been one to generate applause every time the two have come together. And the dynamic duo does it yet again, this time for Manish Malhotra’s first fashion show in Doha, Qatar.
The leading couturier will be showcasing at the first India Fashion Weekend International (IFWI), to be held at the luxurious Hotel Mondrian in Doha. IFWI promises to be an exciting on-of-a-kind weekend getaway, showcasing the top fashion and beauty trends of the season—alongside the country’s iconic sights, luxury wellness experiences and world-class gourmet scene, of course.
When quizzed about his latest project, designer Manish Malhotra said, “I am thrilled to showcase my first fashion show in Doha, a fascinating city. My collection is festive, fun and vibrant, keeping in mind the upcoming season.” And Malhotra’s aesthetic matches perfectly with Rai Bachchan’s elegant yet statement-making style. “Our showstopper is my muse and dear friend, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, a timeless icon of beauty and effortless style. We are pleased to share this special moment with her.”
