The grandmaster of rococo and Swarowski crystals, Tarun Tahiliani, opened the third annual couture bridal event.
The Aamby Valley India Bridal Fashion Week began with a rainforest setting complete with a real outdoor thunderstorm and pounding rain. But rain it did not inside.
Tarun’s theme of the Roaring Twenties illuminated women’s bodies and brought out the flamboyant happiness in everyone.
There were crystals, there was lace, there were orchids, there were flowing romantic gowns.
But, I was worried that Tahiliani would reuse his tried and tested rococo, crystal chandelier lenghas. He did begin the show with it, but then quickly moved to anarkalis, saris, and flowing chiffons.
It was refreshing. Like a rainforest summer rain. Or a perfect martini.
I’ve picked the best of the outfits and a few of the worst. You’ll see when you get there. Hint: think Barbie cracked out in a magenta prom gown.
