It was in the initial years of his career when fashion industry was overlooked, he faced the toughest times then. He was the first designers who used to ask for the scripts before designing the dresses for the particular scene. This was surprising for some directors in early stages but his work was the best answer for all their confusions as he used to realize the character and then design. We can take an example of dress designed for Kareena Kapoor for the film Ashoka. Kareena, who plays Princess Kaurwaki in the film, is wearing period costumes. Manish Malhotra not only design the outfit but the entire look this is what his speciality is. Though Kareena was a princess in Ashoka he has not Accessorized her too much rather give her a no makeup powerful look and she was looking perfect for the character but all the credit goes to Manish Malhotra who can create beauty in simplicity.

Manish decided to venture into the mainstream market by opening his own fashion boutique called "Reverie" which became a shopping hot spot for the cream of Mumbai society and helped his popularity soar as a designer. He soon began designing bridal trousseaus and slowly started developing his brand as a designer.

His highly anticipated first fashion show took place in November 1999 in front of packed audience. He sold out his entire collection in three weeks. He also introduced the idea of having a "elebrity showstopper" by having actress Urmila Matondkar close his show, a practice still used by Indian designers today.
