Tarun Tahiliani’s Bridal Couture exposition started as a Delhi-only affair but in its third season this year it will travel to other cities as well. The theme chosen for this year is ‘Artisanal- Bringing the Artisan to the Fore’- an entirely novel blend of Indian finery with a layered western construct. Talking about the Exposition, Tarun Tahiliani said, “This exposition is a confluence of two great artisanal traditions in a unique fashion. European designers have always used Indian workmanship and now we will see a new fusion of Indian Couture using international construction with the finest weaves, embroideries, jewels, stones and techniques. Everything is luxurious, shapely, western silhouetted but with Indian sensibility. I’ve used colours like shell pink, ivory, reds and brown in fabrics like sheer tulle, velvet, georgettes and soft net. I’ve used the finest of weaves, embroideries, jewels, stones and techniques. We have done saree drapes, anarkalis, lehengas with different shapes.”
