Style File + Reliance Trends | Trend forecast for A/W '15 - 16 with Tarun Tahiliani

You've heard about the excitement that grows during fashion week  as well as the world of trends it dictates for the season ahead; which is likewise for this year as well. Season after season, we exclusively cover the shows and dissect each designer to bring you fashion and trends that are the right fit. So this season, Reliance Trends was presenting the Tarun Tahiliani show which I had a chance to collaborate on, like our previous association in the summer, it was the stuff that only fashion week thrills could bring.

Complete with a sultry eyed Bollywood showstopper and the glitz that winter wear brings, I studied the show as best I could, while live-tweeting it, of course. Today, I've broken down Tarun Tahiliani's collection which was presented by Reliance Trends to tell you about the trends I've spotted from the show, which we can expect to see more off in the chilly months ahead.


Drape & Fall

The silhouette that was dominant over most of the collection was the slinky draped pleats that fell like liquid. In a variety of shades over a number of fabrics, the fluid drape of the clothing added more balance to the other structured proportions, cutting a sleek figure.

Black & Gold

With the reverence that the colour black has, it's a classic move to make. Playing around with the textures like silky satin and plush velvet in the colour adds more dimension to the look. And once you pair the colour with the nobility of gold, it's a match made in heaven. The combination made an appearance in smaller embroidered sections as well as in bold fabric over the bodice; most dominantly over the showstopper Chitrangada as well.

Warmth

Just like a desirable mug of hot chocolate on a cold winter day, a warm touch to a cold outfit can do wonders. While achromatic shades of black and white ruled the collection; the much needed warmth came in the form of brilliant vermilion, vibrant tangerine and striking red - the very core colours of fire.

Prints

Adding life to the myriad of textures and silhouettes was the striking use of prints. The Indian inspired prints which Tarun has come to be known for were the main attraction and besides them, a play with stripes was refreshing to see. Chevron stripes, geometrical blocks and diagonal lines added variety to the print play and brought so much colour to the table.

The striking collection was complimented magically with loafers, ethnic accessories and ankle bands and the Indian fusion pieces were a treat for the eyes, especially the innovation 'saree-jumpsuit'. Chitrangada cut the figure of a glorious, smokey eyed goddess and brought just the right dramatic touch to close such a delightful collection.
