New Delhi: An opulent set designed with roses and floral prints adorning the outfits, ace designer Varun Bahl's collection "Aurum" stunned the crowd with its grandeur and sophistication at the ongoing Amazon India Couture Week.

The designer created an excitement level among the audience much before his show began as the whole hall was decorated with red roses and chandeliers made of beautiful flowers.

Varun said through his collection he wanted to break the myth that flowers cannot look good on men's clothes.

"Instead of going plain with the men's wear, I had all the outfits having floral patterns because I wanted to show that even men's clothes have flowers on them," Varun told reporters here post the show.

The designer launched his own luxury wedding design enture, "Aurum By Varun Bahl" with the show.

Though the much-anticipated off-site show started an hour late, the restless crowd found itself applauding when actor Randeep Hooda introduced the designer's line with a Khalil Gibran poem "Song of the Flower".

"My inspiration was flowers. I have always been a nature lover and this time I wanted to make flowers come alive. I did a lot of fusion and a lot of layering," Varun told reporters here post the show.

The delicate and elegant line that included crop tops, skirts, pants, dhoti pants, sarees, lehangas, maxi dresses for women and sherwanis, dhotis, kurta pyajamas showcased by men in shades of white, red, black, blue and pink.

The usage of gold belt both in lehangas and dresses was prominent. The silver and gold accessories accentuated the look of couture collection, which saw the usage of tulle, georgette and silk fabrics.

Sheer, crochet and sequins also made their presence felt in the elaborate collection. The showstopper outfit was a pink, voluminous bridal lehanga worn with a red sheer dupatta embroidered with flowers.

Outfits like an all black male kurta pyajama combined with a red shawl and a white crop top combined with a long skirt adorned with small floral motifs stood out during the show, earning whistles and applauses from the crowd.
