While Dolly J added a modern touch to the bridal trousseau, JJ Valaya’s ‘Bursa’ transported us to 14th century whilst narrating the Ottoman Saga.

Revolving around the 3 key silhouettes of Indian weddings and celebrations- lehenga, sherwani and sari, this collection brought back the old world glamour. Belted sarees, rich bandh galas and intricately detailed lehengas took over the virtual runway while rich jewel tones and bold prints added a pop of colour.
