Mumbai: Bollywood gorgeous actress Kriti Sanon brought the scintillating show to an end as she glided down the catwalk wearing a spectacular nude tulle lehenga, choli and draped dupatta that glittered with the constellation of multi-coloured stars.
The romance of the “Tarakini” collection by Tarun Tahiliani created a seductive offering that spelt opulence, passion and beauty of Indian culture and craft that will surely be the high point in the wardrobes of the fashion forward women during the coming season.
The beauty look for this show really stood out. The models sported a super holographic look created by Lakmé Makeup expert Donald Simrock. It was all about a warm face with a lot of reflection on the skin. He started with the reflection above the brows and through the skin to create a holographic reflective tone and ended with a line across the face. The sleek pinned hair enhanced the look further.
Tarun Tahiliani fashion showing is always a grand display of glamour, style and fashion. For Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2018 at 6Degree Studio, Tarun brought the romance and fantasy of florals and the cosmic stars along with an ethereal flavour of his signature, layered and weightless fashion for his “Tarakini” Spring/Summer 2018 collection.
Black raised ramp with glass enclosures, moving light beams and surreal music transported the audience into outer space and created a starry ambience at the 6Degree Studio for an unbelievable galactic fashion experience.
Chantilly lace, Chanderi, cotton, georgette, crêpe and Italian tulle were enhanced with bead and Resham work, as well as the sparkle of crystals and sequins. Detailing like lattice work, hand painting and digital textile printing added to the layers of flowing fluid shapes brought forth by celestial hues.
The collection in sheer and solid fabrics offered saris, kurtas, dresses, shirts, lehenga-skirts, jackets in shades of ivory, beige, blush, aubergine, red and midnight. The blue draped skirts with cropped tops, jumpsuits, kaftans, knee-length shifts, luxurious Pheran inspired kurtas and one-shoulder sari-gowns were feminine fluid offerings. The starry and floral embroidery that sparkled all over, was strategically placed on shoulders, collars, cuffs, sleeves and hemlines. Bold tassels added to the drama of the matching scarves, while grey T-strap printed stilettos completed the look.
The pale, pastel, white, blue, ivory and pink line was an ethereal vision with tonal embroidery and pearl edged sari pallavs. Lungis, skirts, asymmetric tunics, calf-length kurtas with salwars and feminine maxis gleamed with surface ornamentation. A kurti with the Astro print positioned as an ornament was a unique entry.
The black collection was a dream with visions of glamorous creations with gold embellishments and gave the line unbelievable drama. Shades of blue, ivory, pink and black sheers were edged with gorgeous gold weaves and subtle tonal embroidery.
The segment that left the women in the audience breathless with desire was the line of gowns with illusion panels and embellished with fine rows of embroidery over layers of translucent tulle that recreated an almost retro Parisian look. Edged with tantalising precious stones, the ensembles were in scintillating nude tulle around which only dreams are woven.
Men’s wear matched the glamour of the inspiration with pastel hues of ivory, pale beige and deep blue in luxurious fabrics, and were turned into Jodhpuri jackets, kurtas, bundies, dhotis and sherwanis, some with tonal embroidery.
