Don't miss the veteran designer's grand closing on Day One of Lakme Fashion Week.

This year, he made his debut as a fine art photographer, so it's not surprising that JJ Valaya sought to bring his two passions together at the LFW by debuting a fashion collection inspired by photography.

Accordingly, garments moved from black and white to sepia and to futuristic in a bid to capture the snapshot vibe. Seen here is a beautiful burgundy raw silk jacket and orange-pink lehenga.
