Regal and courtly, Vineet Bahl’s Autumn/Winter 2013 collection at Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week brought a sense of grandeur to the runway.

Vineet Bahl WIFW

Vineet used a traditional form of embroidery called ‘Chikankari’ which is native to Awadh in India. Using ivory and white fabrics with borders in velvet and silk, Vineet’s AW13 collection included cotton salwaar suits for daytime and rich lenghas, suits and saris for formal evening wear.

Trends: Longer sleeves, waist-length sari blouses (love this!), shades of white, ivory and pale pink, salwaars instead of churidaars, mirror work on dupattas, florals, and velvet borders.

Our favourite pieces: The white salwaar suits with Chikan embroidery, and the white and navy sari paired with a waist-length and three-quarter sleeve blouse.
