The finale day at India Bridal Week belonged to Tarun Tahiliani. This was a lesson in ornate elegance.

He showed us that you can be decadent, while maintaining sophistication. Bride-to-be Lisa Haydon, opened the show in a gold lame crushed concept sari, with a Swarovski embellished blouse. It may sound like too much shine, but it was most certainty not. It was pure elegance.

The crushed effect on the sari ensured a simple, refined chicness. Glamour was added to his collection with Great Gatsby inspired jewellery and accessories (a recurring theme at India Bridal Week).

Crystal and pearl kholapuri inspired wedges gave each look a modern-India feel.

From golds, Tarun moved into prints, ivories, and then blushing pinks. Chikankari was a favoured technique, which added a Mughal feel.

The concept (or pre-draped sari), has long been a Tarun specialty, and he showed us a wide spectrum of these outfits. Their ease of wear, combined with flattering fits, make them a great option for any bride-to-be.

The second half of collection was all about red and orange. A throw back to his recent Kumback collection from Wills India Fashion Week in March. More commercial in outlook, these pieces mixed Rajasthani tradition, with the flamboyance of Spanish Flamenco dancers. Full volume was de rigueur with the trails of the ankarkalis, and ball-gown style lenghas. There was romance in every piece, and he used just the right amount of peek-a-boo. Accompanying each bride was her own flower girl… you’re never too young to wear couture!

Menswear was sprinkled throughout the show. Tarun is a master of draping, and the style was infused into his tailored men’s pieces. The real pieces de resistance for men were the subtly embroidered footwear.

This was a collection that just makes you want to get married. A truly beautiful ending to India Bridal Week.

And we wonder if we’ll be seeing Lisa Hayden in a Tarun creation for her wedding next year!
