Tarun Tahiliani’s opening show blurs the lines between art and fashion, inspired as it was by the renowned sculptor Mrinalini Mukherjee’s hemp and cast bronze sculptures. The collection saw simple clothes, in an autumnal colour palette that included red, cobalt blue, charcoal and olive green. There was texture play in the form of woven textiles, embroidery, fringing, crochet, and prints that looked 3D, creating the illusion of texture. The collection also showed off Tarun Tahiliani’s mastery of drapes by featuring them extensively, especially in the form of shawls and draped skirts.

We especially like the silhouettes which were primarily Indian wear with modern touches like capes, cowls and gilets. We also spotted the international beauty trend of glittery lips. We can’t wait to try them out, come festive season!
