Tahiliani shows men's, women's, Bridal Couture & S/S lines
Jan '15
Indian fashion designer Tarun Tahiliani has recently unveiled a specially curated men’s and women’s range along with some carefully selected ensembles from his Bridal Couture and Spring/Summer 2015 Collection at a fashion do held in Taj Krishna hotel, Hyderabad.

Drawing inspiration from the Past Modern miniature paintings of the London-based artist duo, popularly known as The Singh Twins, the show featured an array of ready-to-wear clothing with digitally printed re-creations of the twin sisters’ artworks.

Talking about the range, New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) grad says, “The collection this time is a mélange of modern fabrics, drapes and colours that reflects the modern day aesthete who is a perfection-seeking curator with impeccable taste.”

“I am happy to showcase my collection in Hyderabad again. We love the city and draw inspiration from the culture the people display. We have received a lot of love from here in the past and hope that continues,” adds the master craftsman while addressing the event.

Created in blue orange hues of a macaw, and reds and yellows of rising sun, the bohemian and sophisticated line included lightweight daywear separates like dhoti skirts and lungi skirts as well as eveningwear pieces like bejewelled T-shirts with hand-painted gold kalis.

A mélange of Indian craftsmanship with fit, finish and functionality of western clothing, the sheer silk, resham and tulle made bridal and couture line are based on draping techniques that are in-sync with body movements. The featured ensembles were belted sarees with stitched-in pleats and layered anarkali kurtas in shades of pink, jade, mauve and soft ivory.

The ocassionwear entries included zari, resham, makaish embroidery, chanderi cutwork, jamawar and Lucknawi chikankari embellished regal and festive lehengas, lehenga sarees, sarees, anarkalis, obi-belted bodices, dupattas and kurtas in tones of twinkling champagne, playful pinks, rich gold and passionate reds.

The menswear extravaganza showcased several ornately embroidered ensembles on an unconventional palette of gold, pistachio and deep orange. Replete with digitally printed Mughal motifs, zardozi work and Kanjeevaram, the collection showed jaal embroidered kurtas, Sherwanis, Bandhgalas, Bundis, Jodhpur pants, dhotis and pleated stoles.

The Mumbai-born couturier Tarun Tahiliani is known for his ability to infuse Indian craftsmanship and textile heritage with European tailored silhouette in his designs.

The Singh Twins’ work is a mélange of many things- their Indian and British identities, eastern and western aesthetics, the personal and the political, social commentary with tongue in cheek humour. The highly decorated artists have been awarded the MBE (Member of the British Empire) and shown in the Smithsonian, the Musée Des Beaux Arts, the NGMA, and the National Portrait Gallery, London among others.
