The event took place at The Palms Town and Country Club in Gurugram. “Tara Bhuyan” is a women’s fusion wear brand who works with indigenous products and will soon be a Men’s and Children’s brand. It is owned by Tara Bhuyan LLC.
Tara does not have a technical experience in the field of fashion but her passion to uplift the weavers back home in the remotest village of Assam led her to showcase her dreams in the form of her design sensibilities.

Filmmaker Rima Das said “I would like to congratulate my friend Tara for her endeavour and it’s an honour for me to walk for her on the 1st of March as she showcases her collection Woven dreams of Assam as a part of Bridal and cocktail wear 2019.
I was very excited when Tara came to me to be the showstopper for her maiden show in India, even the outfit which i would be wearing has been chosen by me which would be an evening gown in one of the rarest silk in the world i.e muga silk embellished with Swarovski crystal “

The 2019 collection can be divided into 2 parts

Bridal/Wedding collection: The collection comprised of materials woven on natural color palettes that was tastefully crafted, distinctive with zaree (guna) brocade work with exotic motifs and rich hues of the north east. This unique & exotic collection offers a wonderful mix of traditional and western styles. The intent was to give the collection an exotic & fresh look to wedding wear, so lot of experimentation has been done on textiles to get the right colour and weaves.
Evening wear /Cocktail wear/ Diva collection: This collection is unique and applies to all occasions of a wedding and glamour parties. The collection was all about a beautiful blend of Muga Silk & Earth colour tones with Swaroski crystals, intricate detailing and surreal sequin work to give a rich luminous look.

Designer Tara Bhuyan says “My design ideas starts from the base, I intend to work on the bigger picture by visualising the ramp. Through my designs I want to show the world how with the usage of elegant weaves one makes an indo fusion outfit. My collection captures the essence and ethos of the Assamese tapestry. The sensitivity and the warmth of the craft traditions speak within the weaves of the North East.”
