Actress Chitrangada Singh walks the ramp displaying an outfit by designer Tarun Tahiliani, during the Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015 in Mumbai on Aug 30, 2015. Known for his artistic cuts and invigorating designs, ace couturier Tarun Tahiliani’s collections are avante-garde and reflect his distinctive creativity. The designer showcased his Russian folk art inspired collection at the Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015.
Sunset colours in rusts, oranges and reds to violets and dark blues define the Autumn/Winter 2015-2016 collection.
Patterns that reinterpret the vim and vigour of Russian folk art and craft energise the collection. Hints of geometric patterns peek out from sleeves, lapels and linings to enhance layering, fringing, applique and new techniques of draping in a range of kurtas, dresses, sarees, jackets, shirts, skirts and more.
Style is like second skin, something you bask in and wear lightly. It shouldn’t be work, it should be you. Easy glamour though, is not easily attained. Perhaps now, the democratization of fashion has really begun.
So it’s exciting as we distill our ready-to-wear line down more and more with contemporary everyday needs and allow the couture greater flights of fancy – and thereby bring logical offerings to the marketplace of fashion. This season, we decided to tone down the palette for fall and do easier silhouettes that allowed an easier draped soho style – with the addition of easy capes and capelets, jumpsuit sarees and all the TT offerings.
