One of Indias most celebrated fashion designers, Tarun Tahiliani, showcased a wide spectrum of silhouettes and styles complementing his trademark drapes and subtlety. Silk and other jerseys were draped around bodies, trussing and wrapping, tangled, rouched and twisted or hung on the bias. The collection epitomised craftsmanship with his all-time favourite chikankari, semi precious stones and Swarovski embellishments.
The master of drape played with pale colours of shell, madhumalti, taupes and oysters mixed with chikankari, handlooms, prints made from contemporary paintings and architectures, shibori, and cottons. We spotted a burst of cottons in fine counts for summer and silk chiffons, jerseys, rayons, silk charmeuse, tuille and georgette.
Draped, pegged jersey kurtas, chikankari jumpsuit with churi bottom, kaftans, charmeuse toga dresses, deep back necks, fringes, tulle drapes dotted the ramp. The highlights of the collection were structured and asymmetrical drapes and rich silhouettes for cocktail dresses, tunics and empire dresses.
Grandeur has a new meaning, and thats Tarun Tahiliani. With an elaborate set, this show is sure to be remembered. With a Rome-inspired set including pots of beautiful red and yellow flowers and crystal adorned hall. The walls were decked with printed flower beds and the ramp resembled a calm, blue sea. Rome has never been so beautiful. With a play of light and upbeat Beethoven music, the mood was surely set. With an array of A-listers like Gul Panag, Priya Sachdev and Mehr Jesia, the show was beyond beauty.
