Varun Bahl's India Moderne collection presented at the India Couture Week is aimed at the modern Indian woman who is keen to celebrate tradition. The designer said, "...it is a modern Indian collection. I have created newer ways of wearing the traditional wear. So there will be lot of anarkalis, kurtas and saris created in different ways. It will be interesting for fashion lovers to see saris presented in a new kind of avatar. This collection represents ten years worth of experiences and experiments. Saris worn by actors like Jaya Bhaduri and Hema Malini in Hindi movies during 1960s and 1970s can still become a trendsetter if they are redesigned in a contemporary way."
The collection has been inspired by historical monuments from around the world, including ones in Europe and India. About the nature of collections showcased during India Couture Week, the designer added, "...I would like to clear misperception of certain people that couture stands for Indian wedding."
