Muse Tanya Maniktala in and as ‘Naveli’ narrates the story of a new bride for Torani’s latest collection


We live in times where fashion is no more merely represented by clothes. It’s more like the art of storytelling through silhouettes and that’s what designer Karan Torani has been doing. Founder of his eponymous label Torani, Delhi-based Karan has been curating handcrafted luxury clothing inspired by his Sindhi background.

Featuring muse Tanya Maniktala, Torani’s latest collection ‘Naveli’ narrates the story of a newly-wed bride and her inner excitement, new rush and chaotic feeling all rolled into one. With henna-clad hands and solah shringar ‘Naveli’ Tanya gave an insight of her newly married life musing in the collection’s exquisite ethnic pieces. What made this collection all the more unique were its storytelling videos voiced by the Torani bride which kept us invested and intrigued for the next episode of her life. Styled by Janhvi Bansal, take a look at the collection below:

For her Punjabi Wedding and Griha Pravesh, Tanya made for a beautiful Torani bride dressed in a velvet red suit that bore delicate embroidery on the neckline as well as the sleeves. An embroidered and tasseled dupatta draped over her head covered her braid.

Bridal red chooda, kaleeras layers of necklaces and a mangalsutra accentuated her bridal look.


For the day after her suhaag-raat, the actress and Torani’s muse made for a beautiful navel dulhan in a velvet turquoise blue salwar suit.

The floral details on the sleeves and delicate embellishments added to the regality of her attire.


For her pehli rasoi, an important ritual of Punjabi wedding, Tanya chose to dress accordingly. She opted for a heavily embroidered velvet blue salwar suit teamed with a sheer and tasseled dupatta.

A delicate neckpiece, green bangles along with a mangalsutra accessorized her ethnic attire. A soft glam with a braided hairdo completed her look.


Saving best for the last, Torani bride Tanya radiated sunshine in a popping yellow lehega for her mooh dikhayi ritual. A dainty necklace, marital chooda and mangalsutra from Amrapali jewels accessorized her embellished blouse, floral skirt and an embroidered cut out dupatta.

Opting for a subtle glam and classic bun, she rounded off her look.
