Show notes read – Our show is not our Couture or Bridal show (as would probably have been expected), but instead is a celebration marking completion of a quarter of a century in the wonderful world of style and fashion. We thank all our patrons and supporters for being a part of this beautiful journey and indeed, we now look forward to many even more interesting and exciting initiatives in the years to come.
For Spring Summer 2018, Valaya showcased a line of occasion-wear ensembles based on his all time favorite inspirations; henceforth to be called as ‘THE CLASSICS OF JJ VALAYA”
The show started with GULISTAN, giving gentle homage to nature… A line of sinuous silhouettes… signature prints and antique embroideries, interpreting designers personal favorite flowers. Followed by, magnificence of JAMAVAR , the collection works the magic of Indian paisleys and the intricacies of the jamavar motifs in a modern interpretion.
Lastly, it was PUNJAB, giving tribute to his roots, he displayed dazzling court dressing of the Maharajas of Kapurthala. These 3 Valaya staples will hereafter co-exist as perennials along with our seasonal collections, both as Couture and as Occasion wear, albeit, with a new twist year after year.
