It all began with a painting at a museum. That’s what Tarun Tahiliani‘s press note for his S/S 15 show tells us. The master of refined drapes and one of the most gifted storytellers in India fashion presented his Spring/Summer 2015 collection on Day 1 at Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week and here’s what we thought of it.

The collection

Works by The Singh Twins play the muse to his (Tarun’s) collection”

Miniature paintings and details formed the story for the entire line up. Like the twins, the collection aimed and executed all digital prints, colours and cuts in total harmony with each other.

Tarun translated the illustrative style of The Singh Twins on the garments making them a beautifully balanced extension of their work.

And finally, I have to talk about the styling. The use of accessories and turban, to me, hinted at what Janice Joplin would wear (if she were alive today) while she traveled through the east and picked up a few goodies through her journey.
