Designer JJ Valaya recently held a couture runway show for his new Tabriz couture collection that marked the designer’s return to the world of couture after taking a break in 2016.
The new men’s and women’s couture collection is inspired by 16th to 19th century Persia and is named after the old capital of the Persian empire. The collection is made up of three lines, each with their own theme. “Farsh” mixes designs from Persian hunting themed carpets with Art Deco influences, “Naqshband” showcases opulent crafting techniques, and “Khayyam” is inspired by Persian nomads and the brand’s own tag-line “The Royal Nomad”.
JJ Valaya began his fashion label in 1992. Valaya is now based in New Delhi and is a founding member of the Fashion Design Council on India.
