The moment the Fashion Design Council Of India (FDCI) announced LMIFW to be a virtual affair, all the fashion fanatics got excited to get some latest dressing sense inspiration. As the Indian fashion designers showcased the latest designs, the year got a little better for the fashion fanatics. On day third of the event, designer Tarun Tahiliani aced the fashion in India with his avant-garde designs.

The Tarun Tahiliani collection- "The Age Of Innocence" was inspired by the days of pre-pandemic Indian weddings and how brides had an amazing dressing sense. The days when Indian weddings had bright lights, big rooms, and numerous people. Tarun is celebrated in the Indian fashion industry for creating his rendition of the ‘India Modern’ bride. Never did the designer thought that the bride in 2020 would be one that will take us back to almost fifty years ago.
Keeping the current situation in mind, for the spring-summer collection, Tarun attempted to turn back time. The designer believed that witnessing all the changes the world went through within less than a blink of an eye made us want to hold onto beliefs and a sense of normalcy even more than ever. The designer, through his collection, wanted to think about the bride of today and what her heart would dream. Hence, he created a line of garments that portrayed freedom, happiness, hope, and a new sense of luxury.
The designs took inspiration from fashion in India, such as the lesser-known minakari work that one usually sees in fine Indian jewelry. "The Age Of Innocence" portrayed minakari colors – Aquas, shell pinks, pale jades, and tea roses. It is for the first time that Tarun's garments have prints that have been originally hand-painted and then heavily hand-embroidered. The best part about this avant-garde collection is that the pieces are weightless yet extremely rich and mixed with textiles of brocade.
Tarun Tahiliani reimaged the Jaamevar techniques for the groom and did another rendition for the bride. The collection includes modern fits and silhouettes, lehengas with pockets that weigh almost nothing.
