As far as Indian Designers go, there is one couture Indian designer we have a crush on, and it has to be Tarun Tahiliani. Tarun Tahiliani founded his popular design studio over a decade ago in 1990. His characteristic signature style has since developed beautifully as a distinct fusion of detailed textile design, sophisticated luxury, and scrupulous tailoring.
