Tarun Tahiliani’s “Easy Glamour” was an eclectic line of Russian folk art inspired designs.
Contemporary and easy silhouettes highlighted the exquisite garments. Tarun opted for sunset colors in rusts, oranges and reds to violets and dark blues. Patterns reinterpreted the spirit and strength of Russian folk art and craft that energized the collection. Hints of geometric patterns peeked out from sleeves, lapels and linings to enhance layering, fringing and applique.
The show opened with a looped black will-powered midi, which was followed by black designs with occasional bursts of color. Printed dolman sleeve top, sleek sheath, peplum quilted gilets, poncho draped skirt and flowing printed scarves on tunics were stunning entries. Bringing on a fusion story were asymmetric kurta with leggings, will-power corset dress, a black dhoti sari and choli, a maroon jumpsuit with embroidered printed belt and lungi dress.
More variety came through satin draped lungi cowl gowns, saris with velvet obe belts, kedia style blouses with skirts, woven embroidered pencil skirt, attached cape to blouses and the mini kaftan with a skirt. Formal wear had bod-ycon saris with velvet hemlines and kalidaar jackets with 3D floral motifs.
Showstopper Chitrangada Singh looked gorgeous in a black draped gown and velvet cape splashed with gold embellishments.
