25th July, 2012, DLF Emporio, New Delhi was my ticket to Fashion Heaven!! It was the press release of TARUN TAHILIANI’S NEW BRIDAL COUTURE COLLECTION. From the venue to the innovative exposition design, everything was about “Fashion” and “Creative Minds”. This larger than life glass structure is a unique concept that has been brought to life by AIS Glasxperts, which is the only company in India having the expertise and technology to do so. It is also the first time any celebrity designer has chosen glass as a theme for showcasing his collection. The ‘Jewel Box’, a 14 feet high glass structure has been created using AIS Ecosense,  AIS  Clear  Tempered  Glass, AIS Securityglas, AIS Acousticglas, AIS unique  Integrated  Glass  Unit , AIS  VUE  windows, AIS  Décor  lacquered  glass and AIS  Mirror. Sixty of the finest pieces from Studio’s latest couture collection will be on display during this 4 – day exposition. Set against a cutting edge glass backdrop that creates a magical mix of tradition and modernity, the new couture collection is displayed in a novel contemporary setting, fabricated on-site specially by AIS Glasxperts with multiple glass technologies. “Bridal is about the bride. It shouldn’t be about trends. Women are still making polarized choices when it comes to couture, but clearly they must be true to who they really are”, says Tarun Tahiliani emphatically as he discloses nuances of his new collection.     For the bride, there are special key-hole jackets, coupled with lehengas in classic hues of deep red and gold; versatile, modern day anarkalis—in fresh citrus colors of mango and peach, with bodices plastered in a mesh of Swarovski Elements—with flowy, elegant drapes and deep scoop necklines, which can be paired with churidaars or worn as gowns.  For the groom an antique gold brocade sherwani with …

Classic Charlie Couture

Sir Charles Spencer “Charlie” Chaplin is the world renowed comedian. If you haven’t heard of him, you don’t know a very important part of the history!! Well you all must be thinking why I am mentioning him here? He is a comedian alright, but his signature costume is something which has been imitated over decades. His legendary hat, large shoes, baggy pants and coat were the result of his own styling. This style was mentioned by him in his autobiography as well : “I wanted everything to be a contradiction: the pants baggy, the coat tight, the hat small and the shoes large … I added a small moustache, which, I reasoned, would add age without hiding my expression. I had no idea of the character. But the moment I was dressed, the clothes and the makeup made me feel the person he was. I began to know him, and by the time I walked on stage he was fully born.” – Charlie Chaplin This legendary attire really inspired me a lot. So after a long M.I.A. from outfit creations, I am back with a Laughter (not literally). And I present to you Chaplin Couture!! Color Blocked Shirt : Since we live in a colorful world, I thought I should give some color to this outfit. Black trouser with suspenders : This is a typical Charlie Chaplin piece. “Remember how he use to pull his suspenders to give a funny punch to his act?” Chanel Perfume No 5 : Now this perfume does not need any introduction. Not because of the fact its “Chanel” but the very fact that it has been one of the famous vintage perfumes till date. Mustache Ring : This ring is an accessory lover’s favorite. It somehow reminds me of Charlie Chaplin’s bushy mustache. Tanned Brogue Wedges : Brogues …
