Varun Bahl graduated from the prestigious National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT), New Delhi and started his label in 2001 and within three years the brand received both international acclaim and commercial success when he showcased his Spring/Summer 2004 collection in Italy. It was there, with a tough jury of the top 10 design stores in Italy such as Tessabit, Sugar, Penelope, and Luisa Via Roma that Varun Bahl’s collection was awarded the ‘Best of the Season’ award competing with designers from across the world.
Varun is a designer who works intuitively; he knows what men and women with active lives and individual style want. He is passionate about both the design process and the ultimate product and is fuelled by his artistic sensibility and discerning eye for detail. His brand is well known for looking beyond the current trends and his customer is someone who wants elegant and non-conformist design. This is what makes his bridal couture very unique.
The brand itself excels at blending vintage with contemporary, antique with new, and manages, every time, to come up with another new and original pattern. Varun is also known for his innovative use of fabrics that he creates especially for his collections. His palette resembles that of an artist – replete with nuanced colour, texture and form.
It is absolutely impossible not to feel like a princess on your big day when you wear one Varun Bahl’s creations!
