WIFW: Tarun Tahiliani's Show
Saffron-clad sadhus at the just concluded Mahakumbh inspired Tarun Tahiliani's new collection Kumbhback. The designer brought bold splashes of colours on the ramp when models flaunted sensual drapes and structured dresses in red, saffron and orange at the ongoing Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week 2013 Autumn-Winter(WIFW).

Although his collection was inspired by "sadhus", but the designer maintained his signature style of drapes and the collection for men and women were high on style and glamour while maintaining true Indian aesthetics.

The fabrics that he used to create Kumbhback varied from silk, velvet, cashmere, to cotton and net.

"I love draping. However, nowadays since we are lost in western clothing, we drape less. I have always loved the thought of using drape techniques in my clothes," Tahiliani, who visited Mahakumbh in Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh in January, told IANS.

"I went to the Kumbh to see how sadhus and fakirs drape, and it was stunning and this collection is an extension of my experience. I have always been inspired by structured drapes and this time we did in much more focused way," he added.

The show started Thursday with a live performance of Sounds of Isha, Isha Foundation's own band, which presented spiritual and mystical music that blended well with the theme of the collection.

Tahiliani says he is big fan of the band and that is why he asked them to perform at his show.

"Ever since I heard their music, I was mesmerised. I have been to Isha Ashram and I think this was the right time to involve them with my show," said the designer who gave a contemporary feel to some of the traditional designs.

"Fashion is meant to represent our time and our era as I believe in living in reality. My collection is not dressy, but modern. These are all separates and one can mix and match accordingly. There are as many as 150 separates (garments) and I believe that people can make 700 looks out of them. So we are creating separates to look different," he said.

His collection included saris and lehengas, which he feels can be used as separates.

"I am always looking for new things because as we are becoming modern, Indians shouldn't stick to Indian wear in terms of costumes. Indians should go for contemporary look because then I think people will wear more of it," said the designer.
