With the pandemic not only bringing about a drastic change in our lifestyle but also the way we dress, this latest autumn/winter collection is a fresh break from the overused sweatpants and urges a change in the mindset of the consumers, celebrating Indian fashion once again.

Draped evening lehengas and occasion-wear with a serious fashion twist as opposed to a bridal bent was what you witnessed at the opening preview.

Imaginative, vividly coloured and designed to showcase Tarun’s signature drapes with a contemporary twist, this new-season line allows its wearers to rethink their wardrobes with effortless fluidity and timelessness.

Well, the fluidity was evident in the virtual showcase that saw the models moving to the beat of the music. You even saw Tarun Tahiliani on the piano!
