The forum witnessed a brainteaser magical event, which unfolded with fusion singer, Isheeta Ganguly singing “Vande Mataram” and Tarun Tahiliani reciting Rabindranath Tagore’s famous lyrics, “where the mind is without fear and the head is held high…” to an anxious audience. Tarun talked about his life journey, opening of his store ‘Ensemble’, which then became a catalyst for more stores to open nationwide. Tarun stated, “Women were done with boredom of socialism” and what followed was the rebirth of embroidery on beautiful textiles!
The models swayed down the ramp in his ingenious styles; in an iconic, cinematic style reminiscent of the golden age of both Bollywood & Hollywood. Tarun displayed his “Ready to wear”, “Evening wear” and lastly the feather light, “Bridal wear” which had the audience mesmerized.
Tarun showcased on screen, his collection from “India Couture Week 2017”, “Chikankari collection”, “Kumbh collection”, and his newly launched carpets with chikankari and paisley weaves.

The focus is how we designers take India and interpret in an Indian way.” Tarun suggested investing in timeless pieces, which never go out of fashion. He educated the audience by showcasing various drapes with dhoti, pants or by itself. He stated, “Wear it and individualize it.” He strongly believes that fashion has to evolve to free people.
