Varun Bahl presents 'Indian Moderne' at India Couture Week
Varun Bahl presented a modern version of Indian wear on Day Three of the Shree Raj Shree Raj Mahal Jewellers India Couture Week.
The collection celebrated India's wealth of traditional crafts. His silhouettes for this lineup included the Anarkali, an eternal favourite, the Sari, and the Lehenga. The Anarkali is a key component, and Varun experiments with its form, discarding the de rigueur panels or 'kalis' and achieving the same fit-and-flounce with circular-cut patterns.
Present at the show, designer Varun Bahl talked about his collection theme and said, "The woman of today in Indian Moderne is the woman who does not believe that couture in India is only about bridal wear, as bridal wear is just part of the couture collection. I have used a lot of black and blues and added more of ivory to it".
This also happens to be Varun Bahl's 10th year as an exhibiting designer, meaning that though he started making clothes in 2001, his first ramp presentation took place in 2004.
This year's collection represents ten years' of experiences and experiments.
