The most spectacular show of the season was undoubtedly the Grand Finale at Lakme Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2010 when India's top designer, Tarun Tahiliani presented his fabulous collection based on the GLAMOUR BY LAKME 2009 collection comprising RED CARPET GLAM,UPTOWN GLAM, RESORT OR GOA GLAM and GYPSY GLAM.

No longer identified as the Red Carpet look, glamour now has many nuances and it's exploration by Lakmé Grand Finale designer, Tarun Tahiliani was a fabulous mix of fashion and beauty. The Ballroom of the Grand Hyatt Hotel, Mumbai was transformed into a wonderland, with three giant crystal chandeliers on the ramp which gently rose to the ceiling at the start of the show. The walls of the ballroom were swathed in hundreds of metres of luxurious fabric and resembled an opulent Mughal Darbar. Three giant gold frames on the stage swiveled around as the lights dimmed, to reveal the elegant models - and the dazzling show began.

It was a Flashback to Glamour as Tarun divided the show called “The Painterly Vision” into drapes that featured saris, gowns, togas, tunics, Grecian, jersey NavVaaris, fringed kurtas and of course the Pegged Drape. 53 models glided down the ramp in gorgeous outfits which were breathtakingly beautiful in their craftsmanship and the Indian rock music was the perfect accompaniment to the Indowestern garments.

The second part was colourful and tribal with the most amazing boleros teamed with modern shirts and finely tailored trousers all embellished with phulkari, ombre and the elegant Bhagalpur fabrics with block prints were turned into swaying kurtas.

The final Padshanama collection was a study in grandeur as the most majestic saris, lehengas, kurtas glided down the ramp. Menswear was regal featuring bundgalas, bundis, kurtas and sherwanis which all had the designer's creative touch. At the end of the show the paintings in the frames rose and the audience gasped as the suspended models in the three frames dressed in the most magnificent creations by Tarun sat motionless.

The finale presented the beautiful three faces of Lakme – Vipasha Agarwal in a lemon gold lace drape with a sculpted bustier, Indrani Dasgupta in a lace encrusted with Swarowski crystallized rubies, pearls, diamonds and emerald fluted floral blouse and sari; while Amrit Maghera wore a copper lace sari draped with a sequined corset. The fourth new face, Lisa Haydon sailed down the ramp in a silver sari drape worn with a sequined bustier.

Tarun Tahiliani, the darling of fashion connoisseurs the world over, created a spectacular Grand Finale show at Lakme Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2010, which left the audience spell bound and will be remembered as one of the most memorable fashion events of the year.
