A design studio rooted in Indian aesthetic, yet Western in construct and fit. A design studio that has refined centuries of Indian tradition into a contemporary expression suited to today’s lifestyle. A design studio that would go the distance to do justice to a bride and groom is none but the very original Tarun Tahiliani.
Tarun Tahiliani has grown through the ranks of Indian designers over the past few decades. Rising to global fame through his bridal wear collections, Tarun is also well known for his groomswear – infusing Indian craftsmanship and textile heritage with European tailored silhouettes.
Tarun Tahiliani founded his design studio in 1990. His distinctive signature has since evolved as a fusion of textile detail, refined luxury, and meticulous tailoring. The Tarun Tahiliani Design Studio creates couture, diffusion, prêt-a-porte and accessory lines, which are Indian in their sensibility, yet international in their appeal.
The rich heritage of the subcontinent is reinvented as contemporary high fashion through the genius of Indian craftsmanship and the finest textiles; along with Italian pattern cutting and construction and new technologies such as digital textile printing.
His unique combination of historical opulence and contemporary chic also transcend to couture. A spectacular example of the historical element of his designs would be the fine detailing inspired by Bidri artisans on a monochrome palette in his fall Winter collection of 2017/18. This collection does justice to pastel and fine artistry and is perfect for brides to want to look as regal as a queen.
Tahiliani started his professional career with a degree in Business Management from the Wharton School of Business, University of Pennsylvania. After returning to India, he saw the vast potential in the fine clothing and couture industry that was evolving in the country. We thank the stars that he saw such potential and grasped the opportunity to give the design world a whole new dimension.
In 1987, he opened India’s first up market boutique, Ensemble, heralding a fashion and retail revolution in India and never looked back. His talent as a designer and his power of innovation deserves every bit of the fame and recognition he has earned so far.
In 1991, Tahiliani decided to hone his technical knowledge in design, and received an associate degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology, New York. Based in Delhi, he is best known for his ability to infuse Indian craftsmanship and textile heritage with European tailored silhouette. His signature is to combine traditional aesthetics with modern design. Over the years, he has became world renowned for his bridalwear.

In Tahiliani’s opinion designers are a hard working lot. Observing his breath-taking collections one after the other we cannot help but notice the number of hours and the amount of hard-work that goes in to every detail, every design.
”All Indian fashion is centred on the draping of textiles. The beauty about each piece is that it looks different on each individual so that there are really an infinite number of possibilities with a look – the saree being the most predominant, though that too has several variations. Rather than the appeal of a fitted sheath dress, draped dresses rely on the allure of romantic drapes and layers”, Tahiliani in an interview discussing the importance of drapes in his designs.As a designer and as an entrepreneur Tarun Tahiliani is creativity personified and is an inspiration to numerous aspiring designers.
