Vintage Garden by Couturier Varun Bahl

Day four belonged to the young and energetic designers like Varun Bahl and Gaurav Gupta. Varun called it ‘The Vintage Garden’ a reiteration of the bygone florals that once ruled the couture industry with rich embroideries in silken thread. The colour palette shifted from soft shades like the pale pink, ivory, duck-egg blue and pistachio, to stronger tones of burgundy and midnight blue. The collection was sophistication redefined!
