Tarun Tahiliani Couture Exposition

The 4Cs – Couture, Crystal, Craft and Carat come to you in the fifth edition of the Tarun Tahiliani Couture Exposition 2013 that opened today at The Gallery, Four Seasons Hotel, Mumbai. Laden with the weight of history yet effervescent as it sits lightly on one’s skin, it takes you back to the age of excess where the hallmark of genuine Indian trousseau is the painstaking made-by-hand details, the ornate embroidery and the intricate threadwork that form this couture collection.

Ivory silk threads sing in romantic paneled kurtas lifted with opals, pearls and other Swarovski crystals even as saris gleam with antique gold and silver peek-a-boo. Generous smatterings of zardozi, brocade and kalidarkurtas aside; the saris are opulent, from jamewar inspirations to gota, chikankari and bandhini indulgences.
