Actor Rashmika Mandanna was the showstopper for Bahl's collection, ‘New Leaf’, which presented traditional couture in experimental silhouettes for the new-age bride.
The collection oscillates between wedding wear and red carpet looks, breaking away from the conventions and rigidity of traditional designs.
A dramatic tulle replaced sleeves on a lengha set, giving it the flair of a standalone statement gown.
The collection brought detailed floral motifs to life through vintage embroidery and upcycled fabrics.
