Ace Designer Neeta Lulla has showcased her new collection at the grand finale of Blenders Pride Fashion Tour 2013on 24th November 2013, in Mumbai. Bollywood actress Kalki Koechlin dazzled as she walked down the ramp for Neeta Lulla as a showstopper. Neeta’s collection at the grand finale of the Blenders Pride Fashion Tour can be described by three words – coquettish, enticing and enigmatic. The fashionistas of the 20s and 30s took center stage in the collection, as attitude and attire both call back the glamour of the past merging pleasingly with the present. .
Neeta Lulla brings forth the flirtiest and sensuous aspect of our culture and that is the Sari. The outfits in her collection have drawn their inspiration from the Sari but have retained their playfulness from the yesteryears. Pastel shades, vintage hues, nudes, indigo blue, oyster pink, and greens bring out ones complexion and yet are muted enough to show ones personality. Uneven cuts, cylinder-shaped outlines and draping, vaguely and with a shimmering quality, creates a contour that tempts as much as when it is on exhibition as when it is enveloped.
The enchanting attribute of that period and lifestyle is aptly secured through the use of embellishment; the amusement, the romanticism and especially the sparkle shines through the tasselling employed generously which incidentally is also the strongest accent in this collection. The glitzy influence is apparent while a muted vintage colour palette makes for a perfect backdrop. While the sheer, peek-a-boo quality retains the boldness accredited to that era, the silhouettes accentuate a certain sensuous femininity that is not only glamor.
