After spending twenty years in the fashion industry, designer Tarun Tahiliani has created a jewellery inspired by the seven vows of Indian wedding.
Tahiliani, who is known for his ethereal bridal designs and magnificent drapes, has stepped into the world of bridal jewellery by designing a collection called 'Tarun Tahiliani for Azva', which is crafted in 22 karat gold.
The collection ranges from necklaces, earrings and bracelets and is influenced by intricate jali work of Mughal designs.
"This is not the first time I have designed jewellery. I have designed pieces for my shows. But, it is for the first time I am doing gold bridal jwellery. I have been working on it from last one year.
"Creating a range of jewellery based on the seven vows of Indian weddings is a concept that is inimitably associated with Azva. My designs represent a perfect blend of heritage and modern contemporary ideologies bringing alive the real essence of the seven vows for the modern Indian bride," Tarun told agencies.
Tarun said his collection is not particularly for the D-day but for other occasions of the Indian wedding.
"My pieces are so light and trendy that they can be worn on other days like mehandi and cocktail parties. I have created for the modern day brides who do not want to be decked up on their wedding," he said.
The collection will be unveiled for a preview at the Tarun Tahiliani Couture Exposition from July 18-20.
"I have not included exuberant lehenga and shararas. I have worked on my nude shaded drapes and teamed them up with this jewelley," he said.
Vipin Sharma, Director, Jewellery, World Gold Council said, "Inspired by the seven vows, each piece in the collection has been fashioned by the finest craftsmen and designed around the idea of seven. The collection celebrates unique promises a couple make before they vow to spend their lifetime together."
