Nitya Arora of Valliyan showcased a Wonderland of Jewellery at Lakme Fashion Week

Presenting an ode to her friends in the LGBT community Nitya Arora’s jewellery collection for her “Valliyan” label called “Juliet loves Juliette” was an unconventional take on the Romeo-Juliet theme. The jewellery was whimsical as the designs moved from reality to fantasy revealing Nitya’s creations as luxury meets fantasy.
High shine satin and luxurious fabrics created an impact on the ramp, when unisex brooches were turned into medal necklaces, while ear cuffs, head gears and tassels were multi-functional accessories.

Enamel work added unique colour and texture to the pieces. Fantasising about an enchanted forest, Nitya had ram heads, sea horses, star fish, beetles, ocean waves and wild exotic flowers as motifs. Jewellery turned into smaller pieces and then came together to form bigger impressive items. Clusters of gems in multi strands had large gleaming pendants in the centre. The sun burst designs appeared for necklace centres as well as brooches. Here was jewellery which was big, bold and meant for the daring at heart and adventurous in nature.


Nitya Arora’s collection called “Juliet loves Juliette” offered constructed and deconstructed jewellery that will be the talk of the season wherever it retails.
