Tarun Tahiliani with The Singh twins

A collection based on the art created by the sister duo operating out of UK, popularly known as ‘The Singh Twins’, Tarun Tahiliani closed Day 1 with a ready-to-wear collection bereft of a showstopper but full of art influences. The Singh Twins’ art is insured by Asian and Western iconography and takes inspiration from Indian style of miniature paintings. Tarun Tahiliani transferred his understanding of the same onto tunic, skirts, saris, draped pants and lehengas in bright pops of colours like reds, yellows, blues and peaches. The level of detail to the print is excruciatingly minute and beautiful and has been described as ‘Past Modern’. This was a complete package as the show set was created with tapestries formed by the art of the Singh Twins. The men’s wear competed with the women’s wear as far as the fun and vibrance of the garments were concerned. A beautiful collection in all.

Tarun Tahiliani: Master couturier

When Tarun Tahiliani steps out of the box to create a collection, he goes all the way. Models sashayed down the ramp in beautifully draped modern sarees, anarkali cut kurtis with pants and jackets over skirts. With accessories like ghungroo hair bands and stacks of black metal bangles and jhumkas to complement the looks, Tarun Tahiliani definitely created wonders at Wills India Fashion Week A/W, 14. Our favourites definitely were the heavy dhoti pants by Tarun T.

The show stoppers to bring the show to a graceful end included Shilpa Shetty, Harman Baweja and Ayesha Khanna.
