The essence of a woman, her true beauty lies within. It takes a sensuous flirtation with swirls of fabrics encrusted with stones, to capture it. Fashion is about bringing out a woman's sense of individuality and style, accentuating the beauty of her personality.

This is the principle that Tarana Rajpal Masand follows for all her designs. Her exquisite ensembles enhance a woman's body in the most beautiful way; subtly and ele'gantly. Sculpting with fabrics to capture all the subtle nuances of the beautiful woman, she designs garments to complement the female form and add to its natural grace.

After a waltz with MTV as Malaika Arora's stylist, Tarana decided to lmillch her own label and there has been no looking back ever since. Her first collection at Ensemble sold out completely and in 2003 she launched her collection at the India Fashion Week, where she scored substantial recognition & clinched very prized international orders. She will also be showcasing her latest collection at Lakme India Fashion Week 2004, to be held in Delhi.
