Designer Tarun Tahiliani will launch a retrospective book titled ‘Tarun Tahiliani: Journey to India Modern’ on November 16. The hardcover coffee table book chronicles Tahiliani’s designs over the decades with essays penned by guest authors.
“Journey to India Modern celebrates Tahiliani’s contribution not simply through bewitching clothing but also through a question that he aims to answer through his ensembles: Can the past and present be merged for the global contemporary society? The book charts its way through the very first fashion photo shoot when there were limited expressions of fashion in India to the modern day,” reads the description of Tahiliani’s book on Amazon India where it is currently available for pre-order.
The book is divided into chapters which each include an essay by fashion journalists including Nonita Kalra and Sujata Assomull. The main text of the book was written by author and investigative journalist Alia Allana and its design was conceptualised by Pallavi Nopany. Published by Roli Books, the hardcover is 348 pages long and is written in English.
“I don’t have a muse, for Kumbh it was the sadhus, and for some other collection, it’s people who I will never know, perhaps someone passing by in the streets of Jaipur who I will see when I am driving by, with a beautiful drape on them that is just magical,” Tahiliani told Vogue India about his design process ahead of his book launch. “It’s not that we make these precise drawings and drape them to the tee because the fabric also dictates its own story.”
