'Men love to dress up'

'Men love to dress up'

Embellishments are the main course for Varun Bahl, a fashion designer from Delhi, who loves playing around with embroidery. Most of Varun’s creations are hand-woven and the more complicated the weave the better it is, feels Varun.

He recently showed his stunning collection of hand-woven western wear at the ‘Blenders Pride Fashion Tour’ held in the City recently and left everybody in the audience asking for more.

It was his interest and determination to make unique but wearable clothes that got him hooked to the fashion industry, “I have noticed today, unlike a few years ago, designers have begun to make practical collections. That’s a remarkable change,” observes Varun.
Varun contributes his bit to promote hand-embroidery which he thinks is what sells the most. He observes that the fashion industry has been changing at a drastic pace.

He says, “The designs that hit the ramp at most fashion shows are wearable. And there’s a whole bunch of new talent that’s willing to experiment and create something new.” Varun integrates Western styles with Indian cuts and patterns in most of his clothes. “I love to experiment and fashion offers endless opportunities to fulfill my urge to experiment,” he states.

Women, observes Varun, have always been conscious of what they wear and make an attempt to match accessories with their clothes but men are not far behind in keeping pace with the latest trends in fashion.

Varun’s designs always have something new to offer and is someone who believes that there’s a lot to explore when it comes to men’s wear. “Whoever thinks that men don’t like to slip into bright colours such as red, orange and pink must be totally out of sync with what happening in the world of fashion. Men love to dress up,” states Varun.

Varun works out of Delhi and Mumbai but thinks Bengalureans understand fabrics very well. “Bengalureans have a definite sense of fashion and know how to blend fabrics to create something unique,” he states.

The designer is also working on something that he calls “edible art.” While this term definitely arouses lot of curiosity, Varun refuses to divulge details about the art just yet.
