His clothes range from traditional saris and lehenga ensembles to contemporary separates like trousers, tunics, jackets, and dresses. Known for the lightness of his fabrics and not overloading them with heavy embellishments, Bahl has been dubbed as the couturier of flowers for his endless love for floral motifs.
