Tarun Tahiliani showcased his latest bridal and occasion wear collection at the India Couture Week with all magnificence. Down the lavish runway, that seemed straight out of a fairy tale, silhouettes sparkled and shimmered, as if through a twinkling haze of stardust. Calling his collection “Tarakanna” translated to Stardust, the collection exhibited an ethereal lightness with understated cosmic glamour.
The new collection encapsulates Tahiliani’s love for layering and weightlessly constructed garments that fit like a glove. Through regal volumes, innovative techniques and smart contouring, the clothes glide effortless like a seamless dream, lapping at the floor below. Using an abundance of crystals from Swarovski, the couturier creates an optical illusion that floats loose from the sky in elegance straight into the ensembles, giving them an appearance of twinkling effect, much like the stars in the night sky. Tarakanna with is effervescent lightness, is a collection is especially created for the modern Indian Bride who loves to enjoy and dance at her wedding.
Commenting on his collaboration with Crystals from Swarovski Tarun Tahiliani said, ‘How can one think of the night sky full of stars winking and muted sparkle without jumping at once in one’s mind’s eye, to the use of Swarovski crystals. Collaborating once again to create magic with Swarovski remains for me, an honour and a privilege. Thank you, Swarovski, for this partnership and abetting ‘The New Universe’ of Indian Couture.’
Tarun crafts a new lightness though his collection, where the ombre of a cosmic storm is reflected through vintage embroideries, Italian tulle and Chantilly lace, accented with Crystals from Swarovski. This new look embraces an evolution in lehengas, shararas, sarees, and saree drapes, as well as panelled kurtas and coats. This is the freeing construct of lightness, where tulle and brocade, crystal and crinoline, silk georgettes and shadow work, are fused together, in self-assured modernity.
