Easy Glamour – that’s what Tarun Tahiliani called his prêt-a-porter collection, presented by Reliance Trends, at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015 at Palladium Hotel.
The ramp was covered with graphics of ‘India Modern’ visuals which was the inspiration for most of Tarun’s designs. A full-length mirror on stage and a rack with clothes was part of the backdrop, while a stylish video showed Lisa Haydon modeling Tarun’s collection.
International supermodel Ujjwala Raut opened the show with a looped black will-powered midi, which was followed by a great mix of black creations with occasional bursts of colour. The women’s wear line had intriguing construction and exotic prints with a marked Russian influence of vibrant stripes and the tribal gypsy elements, contemporised with leheriya prints. The black-and-white striped cascading top and the asymmetric kurta with leggings, willpower corset dress, the black dhoti sari and choli brought a great fusion story.
There was a profusion of carpet weaves and dramatic borders in shining shades of rust, olive and blue. The kaftans, tunics and shift dresses created easy, relaxed dressing options. The jumpsuit-sari, an innovation by Tarun, had the pleats and draped dupatta, which was a great concept to step into and zip up.
For formal wear Tarun picked a rich colour format of yellow, emerald, rust, teal and aubergine, which were just right for festivities. Velvet hemlines added sophistication to body-con saris, while 3D floral visions looked fabulous on kalidaar jackets. Mughal motifs were splashed lavishly on the creations, but black and gold had silk embroidery with golden flecks that moved to darker tones for ultimate drama.
And bringing a glamorous end to the show was lovely lady Chitrangada Singh in a black draped gown and velvet cape splashed with gold embellishments.
