India Couture Week has been taking it up a few notches every season. Last night they opened the show with the outstanding creativity of two ace designers, Anju Modi and Tarun Tahiliani. And the opening show by Tarun was promising enough to turn every bride's runway dream into a reality. Quite an inspiration for the modern Indian bride-to-be, if we may say so! Check out some of his stunning designs.
Tarun's new collection In Elysium is all about outfits with light and luxurious fabrics with a hint of sexy. The showstopper, Aditi Rao Hydari rocked a stunning off-shoulder muted pink lehenga with a long train and floral embroidery and embellishments all over. With a stone studded statement choker, matching studs and some fresh baby's-breath in her hair, Aditi's look was kept neat and simple. This is a perfect look for the brides who believe in the 'less is more' theory.
Not only that, this look has made it certain that au naturel is the bridal beauty trend to dig this wedding season. Do it like Aditi, go for peachy pink cheeks and nude lipsticks.
On choosing Aditi as his showstopper, Tarun shares:
"I couldn’t be more excited to see Aditi in our couture. In Elysium is a celebration of modern Indian goddess and the ethereal lightness of being, and she walked the part with allure and panache. Her effortless poise and individualistic style make her the quintessential Tarun Tahiliani muse - a woman who knows herself and who looks like herself, and who is not weighed down with the burden of projection.”
Talking about the collection, Aditi says:
"It really makes a huge difference when you have an airy, light and gossamer veil... A bride should be able to get up and dance like a free spirit. They want to enjoy their special day and not be weighed down by kilos."
To which Tarun immediately responded:
"Absolutely... Every bride wants to do that. It's not just a groom's purview in a baraat. Now the brides dance more."
Brides-to-be, trust us when we say this - In Elysium is everything you can ask for from a bridal collection. You have to check it out!
