New Delhi, Aug 7 : Ace designer Tarun Tahiliani broke the convention by unfurling his black bridal ensemble on the opening day of the sixth edition of the BMW India Bridal Fashion Week (IBFW) 2014 Thursday.
"I love black. It's timeless," the designer told reporters at DLF Emporio, where the four-day fashion extravaganza is being held.
Apart from black, the models also spread a plethora of unconventional colours on the ramp when they sported Tahiliani's creations in colours such as white, bronze, gold and champagne.
If the designer experimented with colours, his choice of jewellery was 'zara hatke' with models sporting 'mangtika' modified into 'mohawk' on their foreheads.
The sheer silk and tulle made the ensemble light. With lot of draping techniques used, the Modern Mughals collection, consisting of lehengas, jackets, anarkali kurtas and more, ensured ease of movement.
For the menswear line, he associated with London-based brand Whitcomb and Shaftesbury.
Tahiliani feels "grooms are taking equal interest. It is the age of metrosexuals", hence the experiment.
The sherwanis and bandhgalas in gold, deep orange and more will surely lure the would-be grooms.
The 'kamarband' lent drama to sherwanis.
