I work in an industry where women are revered and respected. I have had the privilege of dressing some of the most beautiful and powerful women in the world, but when I step out of the door and into the stark reality of the streets, I see the injustice and inequality all around me. Without women, I wouldn’t be where I am today and so I want to give what I can back to an organisation like Angeli that celebrates womanhood,” said Manish Malhotra in a statement.

Manish Malhotra’s dresses have been associated with a number of Bollywood celebrities like Juhi Chawla, Urmila Mandotkar, Karina Kapoor, Katrina Kaif and many more. His mesmerising bridal couture has always been the dream of every Indian bride. You can find his collections at
