REVIEW FOR TARUN TAHILIANI AND MUNAWAR MASOOM AT HICC
It's touted to be the ultimate fusion of qawwali and fashion - models from Mumbai walking the ramp adorning attires designed by Tarun Tahiliani, and renowned qawwali artist Munawar Masoom blending his voice in the background, on the penultimate day of the Times Hyderabad Carnival, at the HICC, Novotel.
Nobody doesn't know Tarun Tahiliani - a marketing major from the Wharton School of Business who went on to work in the family business selling offshore oil in Aberdeen, Scotland, he studied at the New York Institute Fashion of Technology and went on to fashion retailing, opening his store Ensemble in 1987, and turned arguably India's biggest name in fashion over the next decade and a half. He is widely credited with bringing couture fashion to India's doorstep, and is synonymous with lavish designs.
Munawar Masoom was born to the Mewat gharana of Bhopal, and is a renowned qawwali singer. He started singing at the tender age of 7, and had already recorded his first album by the time he turned 9. He has lent his voice to various songs in the recently launched album Aatma of the popular band Colonial Cousins. He has performed in many concerts across the country, but this is his first appearance in Hyderabad.
