Tarun Tahiliani picks the one Indian fashion label he’s loving right now

Tarun Tahiliani is having a major moment. The veteran couturier just finished styling our delectable November 2017 cover with Jacqueline Fernandez dressed in an elaborate embroidered jacket. A few weeks ago, Kareena Kapoor Khan styled herself in a champagne gold sharara from his couture archives, reminding us of the timeless appeal of a Tarun Tahiliani creation. Having spent over 25 years building his empire in the Indian fashion industry, the designer is a treasure trove of fashion trivia and inspiration. He shares some of his favourites.
