After an overwhelming response in India, we decided that Dubai would be the perfect location to host our first international Bridal Studio thanks to its large South Asian population and proximity to India.”
“The response, as was the case in India, was both positive and encouraging and the discerning, stylish women of the city embraced the concept whole heartedly. The ladies were privy to many insights including bridal wear commandments and styling tips from the fabulous Manish Malhotra. We look forward to meeting and connecting with them again at the Vogue Wedding Show in August.”

This is a wonderful opportunity for me to connect with my customers in Dubai and provide them with a visual and expressive experience of my new collection being launched later this year. I am certain the city’s trend-setters will appreciate getting a first look," added Manish Malhotra.
