Tarun Tahiliani’s wedding collection at India Bridal Week was elegance at its best. The glittering bronze gowns, sarees and lehengas had the effect of a mind trip – surreal and astounding.
His creations included paisley, old motifs and floral designs. Besides, they also radiated colors of pink, beige, off white and the time honored combination of green and maroon. We loved the waist belts worn around the saris which can give any bride a delicate look to the outfits on the whole.
The Indian wedding dresses included crystals, flowing romantic gowns, lace and orchids. And the color story which he had opted was ideal for the wedding mood with reds as the forever predominant color while pink, peach, beige, fuchsia, rani pink, deep saffron, ivory, maroon and black were exhibited in perfect harmony. Embellishments were lavish with zardozi, sequins, antique gold work, clusters of crystals and appliqués which added to the exquisiteness of the garments.
