How has fashion changed in India over the decades? Noted fashion designer Tarun Tahiliani talks to journalist Rosella Stephen about the evolution of Indian fashion from the days of colonialism to globalisation.

Tarun Tahiliani, a renowned fashion designer, founded his design studio in 1995 and played a pivotal role in revolutionising India’s fashion and retail industry. Armed with a Business Management degree from the Wharton School of Business, he noticed that India’s fine clothing and couture industry was evolving, and opened India’s first multi-designer boutique, Ensemble, in 1987. He also has a degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology, New York.

Rosella Stephen, the editor of The Hindu Magazine and Literary Review, has an extensive background in journalism, including launching the lifestyle magazine Indulge at The New Indian Express. With a keen interest in culture, she actively contributes to discussions on entertainment, art appreciation, luxury, and leadership. She believes the access provided by digital, video and social media is changing culture and that makes this an interesting time to be documenting it.
