When asked by Kapoor Khan about the guidelines that the ladies should adhere to stay trendy and in vogue, Malhotra said, “Today’s generation is really clear about their personalities. I think they know what they want, who they want to be and what they want to wear. And if they want to follow any rule, that should be – Be yourself and keep your personality out there. Secondly, fashion changes every season, style don’t. So, your style should evolve with the times and keep changing.”
When questioned about misconceptions regarding dressing, the renowned fashion designer said, “Well it’s kind of sad when people turn up to me having these misconceptions regarding what they wear in terms of whether a particular outfit will go well with their skin color or not. Clothes are about carriage irrespective of others factors like height, weight and complexion. It’s all about how happy you are wearing it and the way you carry it.”
Speaking on ‘What should girls follow to better understand the fashion’, he said, “There is so much change that social media has brought when it comes to fashion. There are young girls who know what they want. In fact, we can learn a lot from them. But what one can do to get a much better understanding of fashion is to stay in with the times. And, to keep in trend is, to be observant. What’s going on in the market and most importantly, know whether it suits you or not even if it’s in the trend.”
“I started my career with films and got into mainstream later. I have got the opportunity to work with different actors, learnt so much and experimented. I think my journey in films helped me to gain that understanding what works on whom and how the fit should be.” said Malhotra, when asked how he decide what dress fit which body and how he managed to style it differently every time.
