Set against a cutting edge glass backdrop that creates a magical mix of tradition and modernity, the new couture collection is displayed in a novel contemporary setting, fabricated on-site specially by AIS Glasxperts with multiple glass technologies.
The Tarun Tahiliani Couture Vision
In India, fine workmanship finds itself in the hands of the artisans who have been pouring their energy, patience and painstaking hours into their work for hundreds of years. It is their intricate workmanship that celebrates and feeds Indian Couture, reinventing our historical traditions.
Coupled with the European tradition of fine fit, tailoring and structured draping, these skills and traditions have been reinvented to produce an entirely novel blend of Indian finery and layered western construct in our collection. The fusion of Western and Indian techniques has produced a confident new signature, with an identity that transcends origin, but highlights heritage along with the finest materials, be it weaves, jewels, Swarovski Elements or techniques.
It is this philosophy that continues to shape our view of luxury and has guided our vision for this collection.“Bridal is about the bride. It shouldn’t be about trends. Women are still making polarized choices when it comes to couture, but clearly they must be true to who they really are,” says Tarun Tahiliani emphatically as he discloses nuances of his new collection.
Couture Collection 2012
The collection is styled in the raw sensual glamour of the twenties, when the liberalization of the body came in to being in a world of simultaneous uncertainty and high octave glamour. Whimsical motifs and sensational colors call out to the grandeur of our past with the renewed energy of revivalist craft and contemporary construction.
For the bride, there are special key-hole jackets, coupled with lehengas in classic hues of deep red and gold; versatile, modern day anarkalis—in fresh citrus colors of mango and peach, with bodices plastered in a mesh of Swarovski Elements—with flowy, elegant drapes and deep scoop necklines, which can be paired with churidaars or worn as gowns.
For the groom an antique gold brocade sherwani with raised cream cotton thread work styled with a long flared crinkled cotton kurta and an ivory stolewhich can be paired with a dhoti find prominence.
