On his inspiration for Tarakanna
“The collection draws inspiration from the frothiness and romance of celestial bodies like stars and constellations. We thought deeply of lightness so Indian brides can enjoy their wedding and dance in their clothes. Fabrics like tulle and georgette enhance movement, while the carefully hand embroidered Swarovski crystals add a twinkle to the clothing. The collection has a confluence of Indian and Western techniques with sunrise colours like oranges and reds married to shades of lilac and soft pinks.”

Second innings at India Couture Week
“The show will, of course, have wonderful music and a beautiful set but I have to say that we’ve conceptualised a strong couture collection after many years. The weightless garments that feel like stars of the firmament go from a lighter range into classic couture pieces. In contrast to our previous collection, the pieces have a more vibrant colour palette. We have also experimented with silhouettes by adding more jackets and capes that create a mystical harmony of the modern and the traditional. I think the workmanship this year is extraordinary. We’ve had over a thousand people working on the collection and I’m really looking forward to seeing it.”

Employing weaves and techniques
“The focus of the collection is on textiles. Traditional fabrics and hand embroidery are juxtaposed with modern techniques of 3D handwork to create a sensuous rendezvous. The delicate use of Chantilly lace and sheer fabrics create an enchanting play of romance besides offering ease in movement. Heavier fabrics like velvet are used to create details and trimmings, adding the finishing touches to the garments.”

Top bridal trends for 2017
“Today’s brides are all about interacting breezily with guests instead of staying put on the stage for hours. They prefer ensembles that are voluminous yet diaphanous, beautiful to look at, yet floaty – the oxymoron of tradition and technology. They are looking for comfort, a perfect fit and a new lightness in which they can move, dance and enjoy themselves on their wedding day.”
