I am happy to have been able to bring Nooraniyat to Qatar. The collection is extra special, as it draws inspiration from the myriad of emotions and moods brides experience before they take their vows; a journey of beautiful moments showcased through the label. Also, this is my first international couture trunk show after nearly two years and I am glad to have collaborated with SHOP QATAR and FAB Entertainment for it. People in Qatar have an evolved understanding and taste for fashion. To me, Qatar is a hub for culture, art and creative innovation in the Middle East. It is always a pleasure and I look forward to my next visit,” said Manish Malhotra.
