Tarun Tahiliani Couture Exposition 2012
Adidas boots the entire event was staged in a specially constructed area, which was created for the occasion using multiple glass technologies by AIS Glasxperts. This innovative stage called was Jewel Box to conjure up images of precious pieces contained within a beautiful box. Some of the types of glass used included the distortionfree AIS mirror and the Ecosense range. The fun and unique addition to this exhibition was Big Strike contest. Tahiliani watch collection was displayed inside a box made with AIS Securityglas and guests were invited to try and break the glass with a baseball bat. If they succeeded, the watches were theirs! But each guest was given only one strike and while this reporter did not attempt to swing the bat, rumour had it that so far no one had succeeded in grabbing those watches!
Of course, the cynosure of the event was the fabulous gowns and Indianwear that were gracefully draped over mannequins. Tahiliani is seen as someone who understands the intricacy of Indian workmanship and European ideas of fit and tailoring. He brings these two together in his creations and the new Bridal Couture Collection displayed were examples of this. For the bride, keyhole jackets with lehengas in rich red and gold grabbed the spotlight. Swarovski Elements were used in most of the pieces, which added to the sparkle and allure of the pieces. Contemporary anarkalis with scoop necklines doubled as both gowns and Indian bridal wear. The saris, regal in style and subtle in colour, were varied in material superfly 5 boots but of great fit. A tulle sari in shades of jade, concept saris with fluted black lining and a silk chiffon sari in copper with lace were the highlights of this range. They were adidas boots all embellished with Swarovski Elements as well. But Tahiliani believes that couture need not necessarily mean silk. Mangalgiri cotton can be adidas boots made luxurious and fashionforward as well, which showed in some of the cotton pieces at the event. For the men, Tahiliani famous sherwanis were on display, many with intricate threadwork and gold brocade. They were accessorised with stoles and vintage shawls. Still, Tahiliani believes that bridal couture should be about the bride, not about trends. The central piece superfly 5 boots of the collection took close to 4,000 manhours to complete and shines brightly with hundreds of Swarovski crystals.
Also on display was the VuTarun Tahiliani Couture TV. The collaboration between Vu Technologies and Tarun Tahiliani produced a 3D TV which is available in 55 inch dimension. It also has an inbuilt PC and is decorated with Swarovski elements again in latticework style. It is a limited edition creation and its price, of course, is revealed only upon request.
