Varun Bahl lends modern touch to Indian-wear staples
It wasn't saris, but sari pants and no 'kalis' in Anarkali suits at Varun Bahl's Fall 2014 haute couture showcase at the Shree Raj Mahal Jewellers India Couture Week (ICW) here Thursday night.
His line, India Moderne, saw models flaunting modern versions of Indian-wear staples which celebrate Indian traditional crafts.
His silhouettes included the Anarkali, sari and lehenga.
Bahl experimented with the Anarkali by avoiding the usual panels or 'kalis' and achieving the same fit-and-flounce with circular-cut patterns.
The sari also got a contemporary update in the form of the sari pant, a mix two classics. Completing the line-up was a selection of traditional lehengas and classic saris.
The show was special for Bahl as it happens to be his tenth year as a showing designer. Though he started making clothes in 2001, his first ramp presentation took place in 2004.
His line was thus an amalgamation of elements from almost all of his favourite shows: his signature Rose motif, dainty appliques in velvet, intricate hand-embroideries achieved in strips of chiffon and gota, interplays between volume and structure, layered looks, and his favourite colours like duck-egg blue, navy, black, ivory, silver and gold, mustard, fuchsia, and pale pink.
