Lakme Fashion Week Winter 2011 - Neeta Lulla

Oh, Neeta Lulla. You make my heart beat fast. This stunning collection has swept me off my feet. I don't even think I can narrow down to my favorite with all these elaborate choices. Kundan, brocade, chiffon, French lace ... she made use of everything to present styles that would appeal to any Indian bride-to-be. I will stop wasting your time now and let you check it out for yourself!





















"The gorgeous creations dazzled with vintage kundan and metal work on lush brocades of Banaras and the slinky gorgeous and sensuous nets, chiffon, French Laces and georgettes in stunning tones of deep red, Persian Green, rust and gold, which gave the ensembles a heritage touch.

 

The rich fabrics formed the basis of the collection with embellishments and prints of Hastakala Kalamkari given prime importance by Neeta who used velvet cutwork lavishly from the Renaissance period for the multi coloured and multi fabric collection.

Soon it was a visual blitz of the most gorgeous and elaborate bridal wear that was ever seen on the catwalk; as asymmetric kurtas with panelled gold borders, mermaid tail lehengas teamed with lace edged long sleeve blouses and velvet bodices for cholis made a perfect pair for printed skirts, while lace boleros looked elegant with lehenga sets.

Saris were magnificent in net worn over brocade or printed petticoats and edged in gold with elaborate embroidery and the many kurtas were regal and floor skimming in varied lengths. Brocade godets emerged from multi panelled diaphanous lehengas and two tone shimmering weaves were used for wide pleated salwars.

Going for various combinations and experiments, Neeta had anarkalis with tiered godets in multi colours or had double saris with cropped long sleeved embroidered jackets. The final line up of heavily encrusted bridal sets was a feast for the eyes, with the nude lace long sleeve embroidered choli with a sensational red lehenga being the ‘piece de resistance’ of the show.

 

Here was a bridal collection from Neeta Lulla that could offer heirloom options for women down the ages with its perfect mix of crafts, colours, ethnic and western blends along with the dazzle of the most gorgeous embroidery."
