Tarun Tahiliani Envisaged a Courtesan’s sense to Bring aesthetic s in His Bridal Collection
Inspired by a show of a Sufi Kathak dancer, Manjari Chaturvedi, Designer Tarun Tahiliani envisaged the sense of a courtesan through his bridal collection “The Last Dance of the Courtesan” on the runway of FDCI India Couture 2016.
Well, it was not just a one-sight job, but took a lot to Tarun Tahiliani. The designer followed Manjari Chaturvedi and interviewed her before the show, which later leaded to his latest collection for the couture ramp. He went deeper to present his theme legitimately.
As the courtesans used to dance, their clothes needed to be very light. Tarun Tahiliani intelligently introduced light, detailed and pale colored attires and avoided loud and blingy stuff. The cloths were added with twinkles and blinks to do their work in candle light.
Manjari Plucked the Strings of Kathak, Drenched in Sufism
The ace Sufi Kathak dancer Manjari Chaturvedi also performed a dance on the lyrics that the courtesans used to perform in 60, 70, or 80 years back. The lady of the show killed it, making the show outstanding, out-of-the-box. The ramp-turned-stage sparkled with her magnificent performance. This time Hotel Taj, Delhi shined with a chandelier and grace of Kathak.
