Extremely inspired by ethnic styles, fashion designer Tarun Tahiliani is of the opinion that Sari is the most elegant dress that has a great dazzling effect. He thinks it is the most apt apparel for sensuous look and brings out the beauty of India women in the most attractive manner. He experiments with colors and fabrics and comes up with his own unique classy designs.
He is simply fascinated by Chikan embroidery of Lucknow and is often incorporated in his designs. He also makes use of beads and semi precious stones to embellish the ensemble. He strongly believes that fashion is all about your comfort level with a particular attire.
The highlights of his designs are: block printing, bandhini styles, beautiful color combination and rich silhouettes. He is unique in designing and this is what sets him apart in the list of fashion designers.
The Hurley Sari was designed by him. Not sure if it is my favorite sari or not, but he did a good job of keeping it traditional.
