with Tarun Tahiliani’s couture collection ‘Modern Mughals’
The sixth edition of BMW India Bridal Fashion Week 2014 in association with AZVA at DLF Emporio, New Delhi on day 1 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 aprojector. 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 mangtika was modified into a Mohawk that added a dash of power to the whole look.
Tarun Tahiliani showcased many new and extraordinary embroideries and techniques. 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.
Gauri and Nainika’s exquisite bridal finery
The stage was set and the arena was pitch dark as the show was about to begin. But through a faint beam of light one saw people apart from the models still stationed on the stage! Bewildered by the scenario, the lights soon fade out and a dramatic scene of a backstage set up, where models were getting ready and choreographers describing the line up, took everyone by surprise!
Models soon take charge of the ramp in dazzling pieces by the Karan sisters better known as Gauri&Nainika. Their love for Hollywood glamour was evident yet again! With fine tailoring, sharp cuts and stark silhouettes Gauri&Nainika’s bride was certainly off for her red carpet moment, walking down the aisle in minimalistic and contemporary gowns.
The styles were crafted in Neoprene (material used for making scuba diving suits). The versatility of the material gave the collection sharp cuts and clean lines yet added an element of movement and flow, giving them a fluid and sensual feel. Wide slits, asymmetric hemlines and their signature curve-hugging sheaths were consistent throughout the collection.
The gowns spilled red carpet glam all over the stage with A-line designers like RohitBal and Rohit Gandhi applaud on their most-liked pieces from G&N collection. Gauri&Nainika ended the show with ‘sheer’ genius!
