JJ VALAYA for Aamby Valley India Bridal Fashion Week 2013

 

JJ Valaya marked the beginning of this extravagant Indian Bridal week 2013 Delhi Edition with his grand show. The collection-‘The Maharaja of Madrid’ is about a factitious voyage of a Monarch who was fascinated by the Spanish art, customs and forms.

The first section of the show presented collection inspired by the laces found in Spanish fans and headgears. It also displayed grandeur of Indian Jewels juxtaposed with beautiful ensembles like sarees, long-collard coats over sarees in ivory.

 

The second part of the show was inspired by the Manton de Manila- huge fringed shawls of Spain. The collection showcased the big floral prints in harmony with Indian Jamawar in paisley pattern. The blue tulle gown, with top part of the ensemble, intricately embroidered in Jacquard pattern was truly eye capturing. Beautiful bolero jackets embroidered in similar fashion was also seen paired with the gown, giving the royal touch, to the whole ensemble. The big floral, jacquard embroidered lehengas inspired by Spanish tradition were really seen beautifully blended with Indian attires.

 

JJ Valaya’s third part of the collection was inspired by the murals of Mexican artist, Diego Rivera who started his career with a famous Spanish artist Eduardo Chicharro. His frescos combined with the unrivalled beauty of Indian Miniature art formed the collection which was mainly in the hues of reds and blacks. Floor sweeping, long spaghetti strapped dress with a criss-cross back was truly awe-inspiring because of the intricate thread work. In men’s collection, sherwanis with bundgala were seen which were teamed with black straight fitted pants.

 

The fourth section, inspired by the armors of Spain and India, showed wide array of collection in fine metal embroideries, velvets, tulles and Georgettes. A deep maroon, velvet jacket with fine metal embroidery at the front, and in combination with wispy tulle fabric was a real stunner.

The final collection was inspired by the bull fighters of Spain also known as Toreros. In men’s collection, long ankle length sherwanis in red and heavy gold zardosi work in gold and black captured the attention. Another was the georgette sari in red print with studded gold work and teamed with turban like head gear with a lavish beautiful broach studded in the middle of the turban.

 

To conclude the show, Kabir bedi walked the ramp in royal, long, velvet sherwani with heavy intricate gold work all over, together with thread work at hems and borders. It was was teamed with a turban and kali.

 

The second show stopper of the evening was Kangana Ranaut, who showed up in floor sweeping lehenga in gold work, with the incorporation of paisley patterns.
