Modern Mughals by Tarun Tahiliani | BMW India Bridal Fashion Week 2014

Tuesday 12 August 2014

Hey lovely readers
Hope you all are enjoying the festive season with Rakhi, Janamashtmi and Independence Day falling this week. I am here in my hometown Ludhiana for the week and having lots of fun catching up with my cousins, friends and relatives.

Last week Delhi saw the sixth edition of BMW India Bridal Fashion Week 2014 in association with AZVA at DLF Emporio, New Delhi. Day 1 of the bridal week saw a magical collection from the czar of haute couture, Tarun Tahiliani in celebration of the global indian.

The arena was packed and viewers were welcomed by a spectacular sight of a fully lit up Rashtrapati Bhavan, through a projector. Tarun Tahiliani’s unconventional and edgy approach of showcasing bridal wear in the color black stunned many! Apart from black & gold the collection formed a pastoral romance of pinks, beiges, burnt orange and noir. Extensive layering, long trains and ruffles were seen.

With the use of modern fabric like sheer silks, reshams and tullé; the ensemble became lighter, giving ease of movement. From textured salwars, dhoti pants, Patiala salwars  and non-conformist pair of trousers to gilded amour choli, vest coats and anarkali kurtas. Every ensemble looked distinctive. The traditional maang teeka was modified into a Mohawk that added a dash of power to the whole look.

TT showcased many new and extraordinary embroideries and techniques. The gorgeous planter’s chair cannage weave jacket certainly got our attention. The sari with ostrich feathers looked spectacular. The concept sari has always been a strong point for the couturier. The hybrid dhoti-sari and numerous other draping techniques made viewers take note of the detailing. Tarun’s bride was dressed in an orange lehenga choli with intricate and intense gold work.

For men, the couture collection used a plentiful of gold, unconventional pistachio, deep oranges for the kurta and sherwani. And even wilder punk palette for luxurious linings. The 'Modern Mughals' collection was truly Indian in origin but global in sensibility.
On his association with BMW India Bridal Fashion Week, Tarun said “It’s been a privilege to associate with BMW and the Bridal week, both of whom have brand values of high luxe, high design and infuse design with technology, as do our clothes, so people feel as good as they look for their most special day .”
