Ankita Shorey had a memorable stay in China when she went as India's entry to compete for the Miss International title in the year 2011. Her experience in China was worth chronicling as she discovered a new culture, made friends and travelled to different places within the country. The one thing that she is proud of is the exquisite beauty of Indian wear that other contestants in the competition seemed to be floored by. In one of her earlier interviews, she'd said that quite a number of participating women fell in love with her immaculately designed lehenga-choli and requested her to get something similar made for them as well. Designers Shantanu and Nikhil stitched the finale gown for Ankita Shorey and B-town's favourite sartorialist Manish Malhotra designed her national costume. True to his love for handicraft, Manish Malhotra did an interesting mix of Kashmiri embroidery, Rajasthani gota and chikankari that he felt would represent Indian culture at its best on the International stage. During the costume parade round Ankita Shorey made heads turn as she looked ravishing in Manish's creation. This was also the year when Manish Malhotra created an outfit for a Miss India for the first time as opposed to the veteran Ritu Kumar who usually designs the national costumes for the participating beauties.
