Manish Malhotra set to make Cannes debut

Celebrity fashion designer Manish Malhotra is set to make his debut at the Cannes Film Festival in association with ice cream brand Magnum, and he is using the occasion to gift an exclusive accessory to international model Bella Hadid.

“It’s wonderful to be the first Indian designer to showcase the pleasure of socialising with Magnum, and make my debut at Cannes this year,” the designer said in a statement.

The couturier is working on an exclusive piece of art for the American supermodel that is inspired by the ice-cream.

“It’s an honour to create something exclusively for Bella Hadid, a true global style icon. The accessory will be inspired by Magnum, befitting true decadence and the art of socialising. I’m really looking forward to it,” said Malhotra, who has designed for the likes of Kareena Kapoor Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and several Bollywood divas.
