Home is the most comforting feeling in the world. It's where we’ve all felt the safest in the last few months. Home is what has protected us. Yet it is often the hardest to come home to yourself. In a world chaotic with opinions and noise, how do you find your inner voice? You listen. To even the quietest part of yourself. And if you are a Tarun Tahiliani bride you will let that inner voice reveal itself on your special day. It will be the moment when you shine as bright as your heart desires. But before you do any of that, you have to come home. To yourself. Why is that, you ask? Because at the end of the day it is the pieces that make a whole, the #piecesofyou. Introducing our new bridal and festive wear collection, shot at the #TarunTahiliani atelier. With strict social distancing guidelines in place, our first ever digital fashion show pays homage to the dynamic world we find ourselves in. Over the past three weeks, we have worked towards repurposing the mood-board room to create a ramp-like setting. We painted the entire room to match the concrete walls. We adorned the walls with miniature paintings and for the floors, we chose the most exquisite collection of old Indian, Mughal and Persian carpets for the runway. This show is dedicated to every bride and groom who want to celebrate their individuality on their big day. Here's to you finally coming home.

"In spite of the dreadful pandemic which is galloping on us we decided the show must go on; craft, fashion, life must go on... So we are putting out our first digital virtual show, shot right here in our wardrobe with all safety measures and precautions to bring you back what you are used to and what you enjoy and expect every July-- a beautiful Fall-Winter Festive bridal collection. Enjoy it and give me your feedback..." posted the designer on his Instagram handle.

Tahiliani hasn't allowed the downsizing of the big fat Indian wedding to dampen his spirit, the ensembles being ornate and embellished but in keeping with the "studios commitment to lightness." Anarkalis featured intricate chikankari work and lehengas replete with thread and zari embroidery allowed for the shimmer of pearls and sitaras.

The designer commented, "The show is dedicated to every bride and groom who want to celebrate their individuality on their big day. Here's to you finally coming home."
