Tarun Tahiliani...

Tarun Tahilianis brand is synonymous with the concept of the modern Indian Bride , blending Indian heritage with western silhouettes. His singular aesthetic vision fuses western notions of cut and construct with the finish and work so ingrained within our Indian heritage. Tarun's work treads the fine line between traditional and modern and I think this is the reason so many brides resonate with his vision. His perspective on bridal wear is so unique and clear you cannot confuse it with anybody else's - he is nothing short of a creative mastermind when it comes to understanding how to dress the female form. 

Signature Feature

Crystal Embroidery: Admittedly I'm, not a huge fan of crystals or stone work, but if I was ever going to be tempted it would a Tarun Tahiliani creation - believe me I was tempted when I was in Delhi at his DLF Emporio store, this AMAZING dusky blue saree was calling out to me and has haunted me ever since! Tarun does crystal work like no other, he understands how to use crystals as a defining feature and highlight, which when you start looking many people don't...

Hello Again!!!

One of my favourite wedding blogs 'The Delhi Bride' recently wrote a post called 'I think I will call this part - acceptance' , a post dedicated to accepting what had become of this infamous writers block and almost chore like feeling, now I have to admit I completely resonated with this post, unlike the Delhi bride I am not am not a writer by nature, I'm law graduate who opened up her own business but who dreams big of opening her own bridal venture, so this blog to me was always a way of finding and reaching out to that base of people who loved what I did - weddings and even more so Indian Designer Bridal wear. 

Now I should explain that I'm not short of ideas of what I want to talk about here on this blog but it all seems to have got a bit lost, I would start to write a post then someone would unceremoniously walk into my room or I would get distracted but something and then the in comes the writers block, and then nothing sounds right anymore or you can't seem to string two words together let alone a sentence! 

So now with a new year comes a new mindset, over this break I've figured out what exactly I want this blog to be, I know now how I want to help all you brides to be out there, I'm sure in a previous life I was one hell of a shaadi planner because I'm packed full of ideas and most importantly I'm a woman on a mission, I want to change the face of weddings here in the UK, I refuse to be resigned to the fact that we will forever be at least a decade behind our family in the east,  I  instead want us to expand our horizons and educate our choices, and most importantly explore the true beauty of our cultures, heritages and traditions because they are so rich and decadent that it would be such a waste otherwise! 

So stay tuned, there's a post following soon!!
