Padmavati costumes – A regal sartorial journey!
Silk were used in the menswear that were embroidered with gota, zardosi, parsi gara and resham threads for an opulent look. The showstopper for the night, supermodel Noyonika Chatterjee looked ethereal in a Swarovski and sequined ivory lehnega that had a dramatic sheer cape trailing behind.
The couture extravaganza of the 10th year of FDCI’s (Fashion Design Council of India) India Couture Week 2017 was on full display at its third day as the much-awaited couture collection by Tarun Tahiliani was finally unveiled to the audience in a dreamy setting that was meant to take the breath away.
Set amongst the backdrop of Kashmiri wilderness with the ubiquitous chinar leaves twinkling with strings of fairy lights, the background was one magical sight and set the mood for the even more magical collection that was to follow.

“Couture around the world, is known as much for feathery lightness as well as the gravity defying construction – this is where our new couture began, as we thought deeply of lightness so that Indian brides can enjoy their wedding and dance in their clothes,” stated Tahiliani about his collection.
True to his words, the USP of the collection was the weightlessly constructed outfits with delicate drapes that shimmered and sparkled on the ramp, all thanks to the Swarovski crystals encrusted on them. With a colour palette that boasted of everything from peach, fawn, blush, pink, jade, aqua blue and ivory to blacks, midnight blues, reds, oranges, and hot pinks, the collection made use of rich textiles like velvet, silk, and brocades that were paired up with gossamer Chantilly lace, silk georgette, and Italian tulle for the vintage effect. Big on bling, Tahiliani embellished the lightweight garments with beautiful handwork, silk thread work, vintage, zardosi and Parsi gara embroidery, fringing, knit tassels, 3D flowers, French knots and velvet detailing.
Not to be left behind, the menswear collection went the traditional way with bundis, panelled kurtas, dhotis and sherwaanis that were given a fashionable twist. Lush fabrics like matka silk, raw silk, velvet and dupion
