Taj Hotels launched the Taj
Wedding Studio on 31 October, 2017
that brings to life the art of planning a dream wedding, inspired from the very
best in the industry. The Taj Wedding Studio is the insider’s guide to
designing the best weddings and unparalleled events; it provides loyal guests
across cities exclusive access to the very best elements that makes a wedding
or celebration a lifelong memory.
Taj Wedding Studio, the pièce de résistance was the Grand Finale Fashion Show, “Tarkanna – The Bridal and Occasion Wear
2017/18 Collection” by Tarun
Tahiliani, with his show-stopper ensemble finding resonance with Tajness,
the overarching philosophy of hospitality at the Taj. In keeping with the
philosophy that transcends time and space, Mr. Tahiliani’s creation draws
inspiration from the signature Florentine dome of The Taj Mahal Palace in
Mumbai. The hand-painted, printed lehenga uses lotuses and classic ojee jaals
while its printed Tajness-inspired cape drape, sketched with illustrations of
the dome and lightly dusted with Swarovski crystals, gota flowers and mirrors,
paid tribute to the ‘new voice of tradition’.
