[L to R] Vivek Kumar- CEO, Hotel Sahara Star, Nethra Raghuraman, Tarun Tahiliani, Vijay Singh – CEO, India Bridal Week
Designer Tarun Tahiliani presented his alluring Bridal Collection at ‘Aamby Valley India Bridal Week’………..I can describe the collection as ‘magnificient’. Tarun has always presented a collection which reflects a lot of ‘opulence’……..a word which is a synonym with out Indian heritage.
Opening the show with soft nude toned pastels, Tarun had a satin gown with side net drapes and soon it was sari gowns, crystal cholis and layered net lehengas, will-power slinky long creations that did justice to Rachel’s beauty while more with flouncy hemlines followed with embroidered godets.
The sequin sheeted sari in beige, the old rose empire line anarkalis, the ivory net sari with a peach petticoat and stringy choli created magic on the ramp. Whites came in with shades of pink and violet for fully encrusted knee length kurtas with belted dupattas covered with silver and crystals.
There was a touch of western chic with magenta satin draped sari gowns, the red ornate lehenga with a sleeveless embellished lace gilet and the gorgeous silver one-button waistcoat over a pre-stitched sari modelled by Binal which was an interesting innovation.

Menswear was very ethnic with heavily embroidered sherwanis, Jodhpuri jackets, low crotch cowl churidars, jackets teamed with flowing skirts or panelled kurtas and embellishments that moved from tonal to multicoloured for the garments as well as the luxurious shawls. The colours however remained muted with white, rust, black and beige being favoured by Tarun.
For the finale Tarun unleashed a line of the most exquisite lehengas and multi kali bridal skirts with velvet detailing and gold motifs. Model Nethra Raghuraman who was the show-stopper, wore magnificent leaf design encrusted lehenga with kurti and glittering dupatta
