Taking off from where he left at last fashion week in April, designer Varun Behl follows up with his sequel. Unlike last time, where the designer was stuck in a pretentious world, this time round he moves to designing for the middle aged.
'40 is the new 30!' this is the designer's message. The show was divided into two segments - men and women.
Silhouettes were markedly western with models sashaying on runway wearing various styles by the designer. Skirts - both pleated and embroidered, sleeveless and strappy tunic dresses, jackets and capes mainly formed the range.
Some of the skirts in glittering gold and others designed in net with printed lining underneath looked very chic, stylish and real (read wearable). Sleeveless tunics with floral motifs and embroidered jackets made the theme look realistic.
The men's line comprised of pleated, over wrapped linen shirts with wide waistbands and cuffs, trousers and embroidered dinner jackets and short linen coats.

Fabrics: Voile, georgette, nets, crepes and silks.
