Apart from the fact that his wife hails from Andhra Pradesh, Tarun Tahiliani’s interest in Hyderabad goes a long way back to his initial visits to the city when he was completely charmed by the history, architecture and Nizami culture. This relationship with the city reflects deeply in his designs as well. His boutique in Hyderabad is all classy in cream with chandeliers and subdued opulence, much like his design sensibility.
The clothes are exhibited on either side of the spacious store, beautifully lit up by elegant chandeliers. His latest Kumbh Melainspired collection digresses from the usual, with a much more vibrant colour palette in a range of dresses, palazzo pants, skirts and tunics. The formal wedding collection featuring lehengas and heavy saris is crafted with copious attention to the details in terms of embellishments, be it the delicate gota work or crystal work. Focus on intricate details like adorning sari blouses with tiny crystals on the front to resemble a neckpiece make for striking outfits. Saris and tunics and even scarves in his signature digital prints are another draw besides the eclectic range of accessories.
Insider tip If you have a vintage Kanjivaram sari, the Tarun touch can be added to it for a new look, based on his discretion.
