Designer Reynu Taandon is known for keeping up with the traditional values of Indian wedding culture. Not only does she balance the heirloom silhouettes of bridal trousseau, but her colour palette too circulates around the hues of Red, Orange and Pink. Reynu Taandon Couture 2016 collection showcased at the FDCI India Couture Week 2016 was no guessing game either.
Although, her experimentation with the modern Dhoti pants style and the lehenga with long kurtis did speak about the 2016 approach towards the Indian bridal culture.
Reynu Taandon titled her collection ‘KAMANGARI’ in association with SUNAR Jewels. Actress Divya Khosla Kumar walked as the show stopper for the show.
‘KAMANGARI ‘is inspired from the beauty & grandeur of Rajasthan. Fashion changes with every seasonal breeze but traditional clothing has come to a point where it is tagged as vintage.
Evoking a spirit of royalty in every seam and stitch,Reynu’s collection is for the ‘new-age’ bride – a girl that redefines the conventional bridal fashion with all that is modern along with an imperial twist!
Every silhouette reflects Rajasthan’s ethnic heritage – ranging from meticulously handcrafted foil printing to usage of block prints on vibrant Chanderi fabrics.
To put it differently, the cuts, colors, fabric and crafts of this collection recreate Rajasthan on a vivid palette. Swirling lehengas, dramatic backs and extravagant anarkalis, are the pieces de resistance of this collection and each of them bespeaks of royalty.
A couture collection that is a perfect fit for the modern bride who not only wishes to retain her originality but also reflect the intensity of emotions through the silhouettes she dons.
A breathtaking sight when it comes to interplay of various kinds of embroideries cemented with appliqué detailing.For Reynu Taandon, ‘KAMANGARI ‘is all about redefining the traditional bride while taking a leap into the mélange of colors.
