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.
