Indian fashion royalty, Sabyasachi and Tarun Tahiliani are among the exquisite curation of top tier designers to be presenting their latest bridal and couture collections at Aashni + Co Wedding Show in association with Zouch & Lamare. Taking place at Ballroom Suite, The Dorchester, 53 Park Lane, Mayfair, London W1K 1QA on 25th January 2015, Aashni + Co Wedding Show will mark the UK’s most high fashion Indian bridal exhibition, hosted in association with Zouch & Lamare – one of the leading, luxury wedding planning services in the UK that specialises in exquisite, original and bespoke weddings and events. Aashni + Co Wedding Show will also feature floral styling by Zita Elze, an award-winning artist, designer, teacher, creator of the Living Embroidery Bridal collection and design consultant, who will also be exhibiting as the show’s exclusive luxury florist.
Sabyasachi’s design philosophy is simple – personalised imperfection of the human hand. Deserts, gypsies, antique textiles and cultural traditions of his hometown, Kolkata, have been a lifelong inspiration for this designer who believes that “clothes should just be an extension of one’s intellect”. He uses unusual fabrics, texturing and detailing, a fusion’ of styles patch-worked with gorgeous embellishments in a diverse color palette. Sabyasachi describes his own collections as “an International styling with an Indian soul”. In his designs, he tries to maintain a non-commercial balance in an extremely aggressive, commercial and competitive industry.
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 and prêt-a-porter that 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 lend themselves to couture.
