Speaking at the press conference TarunTahiliani highlighted on the various aspects of his collection which will be showcased. “My collection has been inspired from the Kumbh-the mela. The sense of style and the riot of colors that one can see at the mela is what caught my attention. The sadhus and their different draping patterns is very interesting. This caught my eye and I realized that this could be incorporated in my designs. In modern times, when we want to globalize the Indian dresses, care must be taken about the fact that they ae easy to wear not only by an Indian but also by a foreigner. This is the reason why I have focused on the draping aspect in my collection” said the designer. His collection will have dresses in colors like red, gold, brown, black and saffron. Zardozi, appliqué, bandhani, laser etching, satin and thick jersey also enhance the look of the clothes. The organic feel to the dresses have been added with the introduction of skirts, dresses, saris, gilets and various accessories.
