‘Keeping the success alive harder than achieving it’

Friday, August 26, 2016

An outstanding career in films and a celebrated label, Manish Malhotra has achieved it all, but the designer says it is a constant struggle to keep the success in lap.

The 50-year-old couturier says things do get stressful many times but this 'anxiety' pushes him to give his best.

“I go through a constant struggle to be true to myself and the clients. It's tough to maintain the position the brand has created. Keeping the success alive is harder than achieving it. There is a lot of pressure, it's stressful, there is a continuous fight. But it is exciting too,” told Manish.

“It's been 11 years to my label, but I still feel like a newcomer every day. The anxiety to keep the label alive and kicking is a major motivation. I can't take things for granted. I feel when you can't afford to take life for granted, you can't take your work for granted.”

He is one of the most popular designers in the country but to him, labels like 'genius' and 'artist' do not make sense. Manish says he would much rather be known for the wearability of his clothes.

“I am not one of those designers, who feel that they have created a piece of art that people will celebrate, but not take. I am not someone who will think of himself as an artist or a genius. I get very surprised when designers do so. I find myself lucky to be doing, what I love to do. I feel really happy when somebody acquires my garment and feels good in it. I want people to identify with my designs and see themselves in the clothes.”

Be it a red carpet or a Bollywood wedding, Manish's designs are often the 'go-to' for celebrities and for the designer, people's faith in his work is a motivation.

“I have won the faith of people. I am not one of those designers, who just come in the end, I am there throughout the process. I respect that faith the people have in me and that makes me go ahead with giving my best. For me, the most important thing is that it's my work and my name is going up there.

Be it my clients from the industry or others, for me, all are equally important and I give proper attention to them.” The designer showcased his latest festive collection last night at the ongoing Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2016.

A tempting job offer is likely but you may discover later that things are not what they seem to be. Home life exudes warmth. This is the time to make it up to your beloved and restore faith and confidence in those who love you.
