Tarun Tahiliani: Art & Ornament

TT5

Tarun Tahiliani WIFW AW 2014

‘…Ornament as the principal embellishment is the glue that binds this collection together’ Tarun Tahiliani.

Setting the standard for the rest of Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week with a stellar opening show veteran Indian designer, Tarun Tahiliani, did not disappoint. His AW14/15 ready to wear collection was an indulgent voyage in worldly ornamentation and clever layering. Precious jewellery provided the colour palette and inspiration for embroideries.

Ruby, emerald, onyx, sapphire, gold, turquoise…an Aladdin’s cave of rich inspirational colour. Textiles included silk brocades, draped into structured salwar trousers and other fine silks used in flowing kaftan inspired silhouettes or as a base for amazing kaleidoscope prints. I was lucky enough to have a sneak preview of the collection at the fittings prior to the shows and the fabrics and styles are even more gorgeous close up.

Because You’re Worth It

I hope L’Oreal dont sue me for using their tag line but I’ve picked a selection of wonderful accessories that will bring hours of happiness and compliment your Christmas party outfit.  High budget or low, there is something for every girl’s treasure chest, sit back and enjoy:

Gold tassel belt by ethical designer, Shazia Saleem, £35.  The belt is 2m long and can be worn in a whole selection of ways, even a necklace.

Beautiful Swarovski crystal earrings by Erikson Beamon, £480 on Net-a-Porter.  The colours of the crystals are just beautiful.  You don’t have to be matchy matchy, they would look great on a contrasting outfit too.
