WIFW opens with splashing heritage line by Tarun Tahiliani

Blurring the lines between adorning and dressing, between a product of style and a piece of art; the TARUN TAHILIANI Autumn/Winter Collection 2014 does away with the distinction between clothes and jewellery. Inspired by ornaments found all over the world, this season they dig deep in the trenches of the heritage of the world and strike gold. 
 
The collection was unveiled with aplomb, and the gorgeous Shilpa Shetty along with Harman Baweja and Ayesha Khanna walked the ramp for the designer at the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week  AW’14, on March 26th, 2014 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.
 
“I am an individualist, evolving a new technique, which though not necessarily Indian in the traditional sense of the word, will yet be fundamentally Indian in spirit” so said Amrita Sher-Gil, who went on to interpret the life of Indian poor on the plane of colour.
 
“This is what struck me as a huge similarity when I was wandering through the exhibition, that in fact this studio does precisely that, straining to capture the last free flowing drapes into easy fluid structured forms, as observed from around the subcontinent and parade with the vibrancy of colour, the intricate embellishments and the symbols that came to define these races. 
 
“To give them a contemporary form, to redefine relevance and most important, not to lose a particular vocabulary forever, by celebrating it in a new avatar everyday- Hence ornament as the principal embellishment is the glue that binds this collection together, “ this is how Tarun Tahiliani describes his latest collection. 
 
The Satlada inspired series is an instant pick me up. These are statement pieces with necklines so ornamental they render a jeweller useless. Details of gold finery deck the collars and cuffs giving the illusion of layers of golden thread. The tunics stand out providing the ease of wearing heavy jewel patterns on fabrics light as air. Also partaking in the gold rush is the South Indian Necklace series. 
 
The iconic shape of this jewellery lends itself to the flattering emperor silhouette and lush necklines. The ornate kaftans balance the heavy gold pattern with recurring jewel motif making it luxuriant and indulgence ready. No jewel inspired series is complete without influence of the Mughals – the signature stone-work, miniature paintings and mango shaped motifs with Swarovski Elements represent a delicate glamour in gossamer, multi-colour hues. 
 
From jewels of India to all over the world; Pleated Enamel is a slimming print, which creates the illusion of drape. Tops with mukaish-work and a full village-belle skirt add elements of fun, while striking kurtas and tunics with medallions and doubloons painted on form an emblazoned bounty.
