Designer Bridal Lehengas by Manish Malhotra

What is a bridal lehenga and who is Manish Malhotra?  Bridal lehengas or lehenga choli are the heavily embroidered crop top, flared skirts and silk scarves traditionally worn by Indian and Pakistani brides.  And Manish Malhotra is a man - with no formal training - that entered the fashion world at 25 and has dressed every famous Indian actress and bride that has crossed his path.  He's simply the best.  He's the only designer known to read an entire movie script and envision the characters before deciding on what costumes to create.  His bridal lehengas are legendary - he often embraces the customary deep and dark colors of brick red and purple and then creates more modern Indian bridal wear with lovely shades of pastel pink and gold.
