New Delhi, July 22 (IANS) Unlike previous seasons, designer J.J. Valaya’s show on the opening day of Synergy1 Delhi Couture Week (DCW) was not upto expectation as his collection featured some of his past designs with a touch of his signature luxe.

The designer, who is known for grand sets and magnificent collection, chose to showcase the evolving palette of still image through his line titled “Tasveer”.

However, there were no big sets as Valaya opted for camera lenses in different sizes to do the talking as the back drop. The designer went for a music which was mix of drum beats and saxaphones to create the mood.

“I have always received great response from my clientele and with this couture line I am hopeful to make the list stronger. The collection depicts my favourite photography which has been converted into designs and garments,” said Valaya after the show.

The collection offered an assortment of saris,lehangas, anarkalis, and overcoats embellished in semi-precious stones, crystals and digital prints. The colour palette varied from black and white, sepia, red, green, magenta and silver in draped silhouettes.
