His collections always emanate with a warm and sensuous glow. Forever original, this time around Tahiliani sought out inspiration from the ancient regional crafts of India, rendering it with his trademark razzle dazzle. For the couture range he created a wildly dramatic array of gowns, tempered by a delicate palette of colours, extraordinarily feminine in execution, he managed to balance so harmoniously the elements of frenzy with the demure.

In Tahiliani’s own words – “Glimpses of shimmering gold, hues of soft pastels and a whimsical frothiness are reminiscent of an era of charm and elegance. Creating couture which keeps distinctive Indian crafts alive, while exploring visions in sparkling crystal and carat, reflects emotions that give shape to sensuous, elegant and bespoke luxury for brides, grooms and their families as well as for other occasions. This collection will be living, breathing heritage, melded with the fresh vibrancy and essence of modern India.” As always, Tarun Tahiliani reminds us that the flower of creativity can only truly flourish when designers pay their respects to what has gone before.
