Black is the colour of the season and that's what Varun Bahl showcased on the opening day of Delhi Couture Week on Wednesday. Transparency, layering and handcrafted textures were the key elements that the designer chose to flaunt through his collection. For the fall 2012-13 haute couture collection, Varun Bahl chose to go minimal with less focus on embroidery and more towards wearbilty.
"I attempted to merge the classic evergreen of old India with the outlook of modern Indian dressing tastes. People are wrong when they mix couture and bridal and that's what I wanted to focus on the collection," the designer said after the show.
What attracted everybody's attention was the use of black colour. His collection comprises of lots of lehangas, saris, anarkalis in the darker tones. The other key colours in the collection were cobalt to navy blues, olive, coral and reds.
