India Today - - COVER STORY -

The grand Blen­ders Pride Fash­ion Tour 2017 re­cently held in the city at cel­e­brated au­then­tic­ity and unique­ness of style with an event themed ‘Style : More than you Think’. A daz­zling show in its 13th edi­tion, the multi-city tour's Mum­bai leg was all about break­ing stereo­types and de­fy­ing con­ven­tions by show­ing to the world that there is more to one’s style which the world doesn’t know about. Cel­e­brated de­signer Tarun Tahil­iani cre­ated a col­lec­tion rep­re­sent­ing a mul­ti­tude of de­signs like laser etch­ing, zardozi, re­sham-thread em­broi­dery, aari work, fring­ing and vel­vet ac­cents. A heady cock­tail of mu­sic, tech­nol­ogy and fash­ion, the BPFT saw award-win­ning ac­tor Sonam Kapoor show­case Tahil­iani’s cre­ation in a daz­zling pas­tel gown. Held at the Grand Hy­att lawns on a cool De­cem­ber even­ing, the event, pre­dictably, had eclec­tic mu­sic with Midi­val Pun­ditz, the pop­u­lar fu­sion band and folk singer Malini Awasthi known for her mel­liflu­ous ren­di­tions in di­alects like Awadhi, Bun­delkhandi and Bho­jpuri.
