I just got some more dope on the Tarun Tahiliani Fall/ Winter 2009 line at his flagship store in Khar, Mumbai dubbed Tarun Tahiliani Couture. The entire gamut of jewelery and accessories according to the different occasions in the celebration of a marriage. Evidently this includes 6 different “magnificent” themes; Pooja, Mehendi, Sangeet, Shaadi, Reception, Mughal Garden (because who gets married without a Mughal garden these days right?!) But the real treat will be all 65 ensembles from his F/W Couture collection. (How cool that the mannequins are wearing shoes too!)
Speaking on the occasion, Tarun Tahiliani said, “Across all cultures, the occasion of a wedding is important and especially more so in India. Through this collection I am trying to highlight the effort that goes into adorning the bride and groom, so that this milestone in their lives becomes one of beauty, elegance and pride.” (And unfortunately mega expense.)
This exhibition is inspired by the ‘Costumes of Royal India’, which was mounted by Diane Vreeland in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Similarly here, the ensembles exhibit exquisite jewelry and a collection of meenakari in uncut diamonds by Gems Paradise. The exhibition will be on display from the 29th July– 1stt of August 2009. Even if you can’t afford it, its probably worth a window shopping escapade!
Psst! If you’re any good at stealth photography take a picture of the stuff you like and I can probably hook you up with a talented remake artist who can mostly replicate anything the fashion “royalty” comes up with. This is India after all. :)
