WLIFW: Tarun Tahiliani








































































Tarun Tahiliani's show had a bit of everything. The collection was swathed in different colors as varied as reds, purples, greys, blacks, beiges and creams and in different textures, tulle, net, tweed, velvet or his signature chiffons. The expected craftsmanship of using embroideries and other work in traditional Indian techniques was there too.

The menswear saw mostly Indian formal wear but the real show-stealers were the women's designs. The collection swayed between Indian and Western ensembles but it was easy to easy that the Indian silhouettes retained the western influences in their clean, elegant and minimal design.

All the garments are so beautiful and well crafted. A lot of colours, but still muted and worked beautifully in harmony. Besides the textures, prints and fabrics, the highlight is his clever way of styling the Indian silhouettes with western influence. I don’t like the design of the maroon kameez in menswear.

Must have been a fun show to watch, but I do not see anything original in the garments. They have had the same sillouttes for a long long time. The slightly layered/rouched/bustier type top, Flared skirt (both in muted tones and jewel colours)
