Caught up with the Tarun Tahiliani Bridal Couture Exposition at the DLF Emporio Mall in New Delhi. Just in time – today was the last day of the “show”. The venue held large signs of “No Photography” and although none of the security personnel stopped me from shooting, I thought it best to ask Tarun himself. His first response was, “Sorry, no photography!” but when I said “But for blogging! Please!”, he looked at me, smiled, waved me away and said, “Fine. For blogging.” *giggle* I already like his work and he turned out to be a sweetheart too.

I was happy to see some clothing for men as well – as the under-represented gender in most clothing expositions, this was a welcome change. Some of the “chikan” work kurtas were really lovely.

Tarun Tahiliani, Fashion Designer, Bridal Couture Exhibition, DLF Emporio. Fashion Event Photography by professional Indian lifestyle photographer Naina Redhu of Naina.coAbove : looked like they used some naturals / real flowers for some of the jewelry! So elegant and beautiful.




Nice detailing and bling without going over the top to gaudy for almost 75% of the entire collection.

This looks like a lovely campaign – the model is Rachel Bayros Kanishtha Dhankar and the way she’s been styled is so different from how I’ve normally seen her. [ Thanks @santumisra for the correction! ] Beautiful & elegant.


I’d read about the presence of AIS, the glass company, at the venue and they had this setup with some of Tarun’s watches, a glass covered panel and an aluminum baseball bat. If you broke the glass, you could have a watch. If they’d allowed me to get my own bat, I could’ve at least cracked the glass – maybe. Lovely the sound the bat made when I smacked the glass with it. Maybe someone can try creating music. *idea*
