The fashion ramp turned into a durbar for JJ Valaya’s show at the Delhi Couture Week (DCW). The ace designer aimed to bring the Turkish empire alive with grand props, a regal setting and a heavy dose of embroidery, delicate motifs in metal work, zardozi, badla and semi precious stone on his garments.
The line did remind us of his last showcase at the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WIFW, although this time it was a couture collection.
From saris, achkans, lehangas to anarkalis – there was everything that a woman could ask for. Even the menswear had some interesting designs in the form of sherwanis and jodhpuris. A highpoint of the collection was an innovative mix of belts and jackets on saris.
Our favourite was the blue/ purple anarkali above.
