Fashion designer Tarun Tahiliani showed his collection during the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week – Autumn-Winter 2013 in New Delhi, India on Thursday, March 14, 2013.
The collection was dominated by orange, tangerine, saffron and red shades and had a rustic feel to it. The underlying feel of the clothes was quite Indian in its essence – bringing to mind the “sadhus and sages” of the contiment.

There was a combination of different fabrics at play. Velvet blouses made with net covering the neck area were teamed with organza sarees. The sarees themselves had heavily embellished borders. Chunky bangles added a fun quotient to the overall look. The long beaded necklaces could be well mistaken for “rudraksh malas”.

The collection was also about draped lycra dresses. Bracelets made of shells and feathers were an interesting touch.

The “gamcha” or “Indian towel” feel was also quite evident – it was perfectly brought out with the help of crinkled dupattas. We also couldn’t help but notice a slight “Red Indian” touch by way of the ruffles and feathers and the neck accessories.

Apart from the saffron effect, Tahiliani also used classic combinations like black and red. Pompoms were used along the “pallu” border.

The makeup consisted of smokey eyes and orange lips. However, the smokey eyes had a slight twist – in the sense that instead of the upper eye lid being smokey, it was the lower eye lid that sported the smokey effect.
