What does one expect from a master couturier such as Tarun Tahiliani? Glam? Creativity and Imagination? Flowy and Sensual silhouettes? Beautiful fits and Structured clothes? And a dash of Panache perhaps? Of course. And he delivers. His collection was exactly what I expected it to be.
I have so many favorite pieces in this collection. For instance, how fabulous is the sari in white with a halter necked, sleeveless vest that buttons on the outside? Or that long flowy white kurta/tunic with the Grecian chord detailing and the churidaar! Beautiful! Am glad he moved away from bejewelling his clothes to actually using them as a print, digitally transferred am assuming! I loved how that effect looks on the tunic when paired with the churidaar!
Of course, the Jodhpurs made an appearance. I don’t see how practical they ever are for non-derby wear, but there you have it! Jodhpurs made an appearance even in the Ashish Soni collection in the NY Fashion Week! Hmm.
And just when I was heaving a sigh of relief that thankfully this year, as far as the shows go till now, everyone strayed away from having Bollywood celebs get on the runway for them, Tarun Tahiliani goes and has Shilpa Shetty do exactly that for him! We’l just allow him that I suppose, since she has been a muse and graced his show last time around too! And she totally worked the runway!
Her outfit was a shimmering work of gold, though a dress, styled around the idea of a sari! She reminded me of an Egyptian princess, she was totally channeling Cleopatra, methinks!
The collection gets a thumbs-up! Masterfully crafted and effortlessly excecuted.
