New Delhi, July 28: Modern women don't want to look overdressed, says designer Varun Bahl, adding that his creations are an amalgamation of Indian and western silhouettes and designs.
From stylish cocktail dresses, elegant saris created with modern designs, sophisticated cuts to anarkali suits, embellished lehengas with intricate handwork embroidery and beadwork - Bahl offers perfect creations for modern women.
"A woman today doesn't want to look overdressed. So, she looks for designs that bring tradition and modernity together," Bahl, known for his signature applique work and block printing, told IANS in an interview.
"My creations are an amalgamation of Indian and western silhouettes and designs. The outfits are perfect for both pre- and post-wedding events. Like a sari-gown replacing a cocktail draped dress, and an anarkali becoming a daywear option," Bahl added.
Ready to showcase his latest fall 2013 haute couture collection on day two of the Delhi Couture Week (DCW) starting July 31, the designer is known for his immense contribution to the fashion industry.
Bahl, who launched his label in 2001, creates simple and structured outfits using varied weaving techniques which are available domestically as well as at 42 stores in Italy and 10 in Spain. His creations are also being sold in the Middle East and other parts of the world.
Bahl's latest one-of-its-kind collection comprises 40 pieces created using fabrics like silk, chiffon, wool-crepe, and bubble-crepe combined with diaphanous gauze, organza, and silk net.
"I started working on the collection three months back. Like my previous creations, this time also I have used winter pastel shades like pale blue, dust pink and powdered moss. You will also see the hints of ochre, fuchsia, red and black," he said.
