JJ Valaya presents 'Rumeli' with showstopper Mrunal Thakur at FDCI x LFW
On October 6, designer JJ Valaya presented rich-toned traditional wear with new festive collection ‘Rumeli’ at the Fashion Design Council of India x Lakme Fashion Week’s ongoing edition.
Bollywood celebrity Mrunal Thakur was chosen as the collection’s showstopper and she wore a deep scarlet and metallic lehenga featuring a mix of delicate floral embellishments, stripes, zig zags, and large peacocks around the bottom of the skirt. Accessorised with the signature JJ Valaya belt, traditional jewellery, and a sparkling crown-like headdress, the look was a modern take on regal splendour.
“The Valaya muse has always been the epitome of unwavering strength, inimitable style and grace and the Rumeli festive line is a luxurious festive tribute to an evolved couture sensibility, valuing timelessness over the fragility of trend cycles, meriting craftsmanship over gimmickry, whilst seducing fashion aficionados with harmonious perfection,” the FDCI announced on Facebook, launching the collection.
The collection featured jewel-toned hues for both men and women with botanical motifs featuring throughout. Notable details included blouses with corset lacing up the back, bold monochrome patterns, and printed turbans for the men.
The second edition of FDCI x LFW runs until October 10 and sponsors include Rise Worldwide and Nexa. The phygital fashion week also features a business-to-business virtual designer showroom, NFTs, and design contests.
