After this decision there was 15 years of hard work which made Manish real Manish and the Manish Malhotra we all know. As there was no seriousness for the fashion in the film industry earlier actors were very loud and wore studio-tailor-styled-clothes, which were garish and jarring on the eye for discerning cine-goers. Initially, no filmmakers were interested in paying designers or taking there help. Many times the designers have to face problems like cheque bouncing and this discouraged many of them but Manish created a space for himself and made a mark inspite of all these problems.
