With the 15th edition of Lakme Fashion week just round the corner designers are all set to showcase their exclusive collection. Tarun Tahiliani a name to reckon with in the fashion industry is ready with his collection for LFW, here’s an excerpt from a chat with the ace designer.
What has been your inspiration for this collection?
My inspiration has been an anthology of influences that range as far and wide as the moods of the woman wearing them, the ready-to-wear line is a homage to construction, albeit in exotic prints. The Russian influences in bold and colourful stripes and chits remind you of the rich visual intensity of Central Asian textile tradition even as the Shiraz inspiration (named after a city in Iran) takes from their famous mosaics and kilim weaving practices.
What are the fabrics, cuts and silhouettes that you think will be trending this autumn winter?
We have used heavier weights and blends of satin and georgettes. These fabrics drape well and have a very good fall.
