Bahl's mastery over the medium is evident in his collection of men's and women's wear, which is simultaneously vintage and modern bohemian. He juxtaposes winter fabrics like silk velvet with delicate chiffons, tulles and ornate jacquards, and used them in colours like old moss, dirty gold, wood, and murky blue. The palette is warm and winter worthy, especially the use of the murky blue to perk up the other deep dirty colours. He creates a range of skirts, tops, dresses, shawl coats for women, and pants, shirts and jackets for men.

The use of techniques like partial layering in assorted fabrics, sequined base fabric worked over with untwisted wool yarns, organic patchwork, whimsical embroidery placements, and quilting combined with beetle-wing coloured beads, were unique and exciting. The men's wear continued on the same lines, with fringed and embroidered scarves that looked nice and dandy.
