Indian fashion designer, Tarun Tahiliani, went spiritual for his latest collection presented at Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week inspired by the way sadhus dress.
"I had gone to Kumbh at Makar Sakranti for two days and it was spectacular. We have become a divided society and shun the power of such holy practices. I think sadhus deserve to be loved and admired".
Models walked the ramp in long braids with especially designed garlands on their head. Even men wore dhotis teamed with bandhgalas. He added: "I like what they (sadhus) wear. They just tuck it around in rounds and similarly my clothes can be worn in the same manner, I have always been inspired by their draping sense and wanted to bring it in my collection. I think we are losing the draping techniques gradually. Since I have been to the ashram, I thought to use the draping technique in more purposeful way and therefore, used various shades of saffron. I think it is the right time to do this collection".
