Lakme India Fashion Week Winter 2011 - JJ Valaya

The name JJ Valaya is synonymous with luxury when it comes to Indian bridal wear and he didn't deter from this in his latest collection titled "Tasveer." His very regal line included elaborate bridal lehngas with jackets, along with pieces that would make any groom stand out from the crowd.

"Opening with the black and white section there was a mix of men’s and women’s creations – mandarin collar waist coat with white motifs, long gowns with tiny embroidered boleros or bodice and paneled sheer kurta and black churidars. The Sepia line had delicate brown and off-white work for printed saris with crystal work, extended sleeve kurtas, lehengas and cholis with net dupattas and paisleys embroidered skillfully for men’s Raja coats.

For the colour and digital segment, Valaya started with ravishing red for paneled long coats, velvet embroidered jackets with saris, bandgalas and lehengas with embellished yokes and then added digitally printed saris in royal blue and black dappled with rich crystals, stones and sequins finishing with a stunning floor length halter kurta in ink blue. Bringing in his very popular Alika jacket, Valaya presented it with saris, lehengas and tunics.

The lush saris in lamé studded with precious stones and crystals were visions of beauty in black and white digital prints. Gorgeous lehengas with velvet godets, gleaming crystals, encrusted embroidery and gold detailing appeared on specially woven fabrics. The silhouettes were a fusion of the traditional and contemporary as tiered creations were layered and flowing Farshiyas gave a royal touch to the garments.


The showman that Valaya is, he kept the most awesome for the last as he unleashed a final fashion blitz of dazzling lehengas with a mindboggling assortment of different versions of the Alika jacket in raw silk, shot silk, brocade and lamé all unbelievably beautiful to view."
