With melodious Rajasthani numbers like "Kesariya balam" and "Mohe pi ki najariya" playing, and the runway decked up with a traditional urli (brass bowl) filled with fragrant mogra, and a recreation of a popular fort from Rajasthan -- the show left the audience mesmerised. Models sashayed down the ramp showcasing exquisite lehengas, extravagant anarkalis and saris, in an array of bright and beautiful colours such as orange, red, gold and green.
The silhouettes reflected Rajasthan's rich heritage -- varying from handcrafted foil printing to usage of block prints on vibrant Chanderi fabric. Taandon told IANS: "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."
Why did she choose Divya as the showstopper?
"I chose Divya 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," Taandon, who has styled the likes of Bollywood personalities Manoj Bajpayee, Chitrangada Singh and Minissha Lamba, said. Taandon's show was followed by designer duo Rimple and Harpreet Narula's collection titled Hiraeth.
