Discover New Designers: Tarun Tahiliani

When Vikram Chatwal (model, actor and the son of a New York hotel magnate) married Priya Sachdev (also a model and actress), Tarun Tahiliani was there. At least in spirit. The bride wore a pink organza gown designed by Tahiliani, who is known for his luxury clothing. It was a small, intimate affair (of 400 guests), which lasted an entire week. According to the web site of British newspaper, the Telegraph, the wedding “rivalled the £30 million splashed out in 2004 by the Indian steel magnate Lakshmi Mittal for his daughter’s wedding.” Thirty million pounds, huh. I see they did it on the cheap. Tahiliani isn’t new in the Indian fashion world, having established his couture line in 1992. But Americans may not be familiar with his name. I suggest you become familar with his work because it is amazing. Tahiliani has succeeded in enhancing one of my favorite styles of all time: the saree. By American standards, a rather elaborate dress to begin with, Tahiliani’s versions are vibrantly colored and bejeweled. Utterly and completely breathtaking.
