Reynu Taandon ICW 2016
Reynu Taandon • India Couture Week • 2016
Inspired by the beauty and grandeur of the princely Indian state
Remaining true to her roots, designer Reynu Taandon in association with SUNAR Jewels presented 'Kamangari' which is inspired from the beauty and grandeur of Rajasthan. Fashion changes with every seasonal breeze but traditional clothing has come to a point where it is tagged as vintage.
Evoking a spirit of royalty in every sea, and stitch, Reynu's collection is for the 'new-age' bride. A girl that redefines the conventional bridal fashion with all that is modern along with the imperial twist. Melodious Rajasthani number 'Kesariya Balam' was played, along with 'Mohe pi ki najariya', with the runway decked up with traditional urli (brass bowl) filled with fragrant mogra, and a recreation of a popular fort from Rajasthan.
Every silhouette reflects Rajasthan's ethnic heritage - ranging from meticulously handcrafted foil printing to usage of block prints on vibrant Chanderi fabric. To put it differently, the cuts, colours, fabric and crafts of this collection recreate Rajasthan on a vivid palette. Swirling lehengas, dramatic backs and extravagant anarkalis, are the pieces de resistance of this collection and each of them bespeaks of royalty.
This couture collection is a perfect fit for a bride who not only wishes to retain her originality but also reflect the intensity of emotions through the silhouettes she dons.
A breathtaking sight when it comes to interplay of various kinds of embroideries cemented with appliqué detailing.
For Reynu Taandon, 'Kamangari' is all about redefining the traditional bride while taking a leap into the mélange of colour.
"I chose Rajasthan because I am inspired by the beauty and grandeur of Rajasthan. I wanted to remain true to my roots. 'Kamangari' means handcrafted. I chose Divya Khosla (showstopper) because I think she would be perfect for a girl that redefines the conventional bridal fashion with all that is modern along with an imperial twist."
