'Dream Girl' Hema Malini performs as Radha for Neeta Lulla
Aug '12
It was a grand show that Forever Jewellery presented when Neeta Lulla’s stunning collection called “Radha” glided down the runway at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012.

Clusters of white temple bells hung from the ceiling while imposing tall pillars on one side of the stage created the perfect ambience. As the hall lights dimmed, the many diyas outlining the stage lit up to reveal yards of white drapes and the graceful figure of Bollywood’s only “Dream Girl” Hema Malini. 
The star danced with unmatched grace with Raul D’Souza as ‘Krishna” to create the right mood for the show.  Inspired by the beautiful Radha, the symbol of true love, Neeta’s collection was a work of intense beauty in traditional style.  Giving a great blend of the East and West, Neeta combined the silhouettes of gowns for the ghagras to produce a wonderful fusion story.
Detailing was intricate with zardozi being the prime craft followed by quilting, appliqué and embroidery. The fabric choice was rich and opulent as Banaras Jaal and Chinar Butti brocades were added to the gorgeous Kanjeevaram, organza, tulle and silks.  
The colour palette related perfectly to the theme as Neeta remained true to the traditional shade card for her creations. The colour combos were regal as trios like raani pink/purple/orange and saffron/emerald/ fuchsia worked well.  
The collection of lehengas, cholis and dupattas were a feast for the senses and the eyes. To complement the splendorous creations, were the fabulous bridal ornaments by Forever Jewellery. Dazzling kundan necklaces, chandelier earrings, maang tikkas, Minakari bangles - the list was an endless collection of the best wedding jewellery.  
Neeta’s innovations for the lehengas and ghagras were mind-blowing as the designer allowed her creativity to know no bounds. Brocade lehengas with centre tiered pleats, multicoloured embroidery on hemlines, and ghagras with vertical fluting panels were dazzling. More innovations came in the form of a dhoti inspired lehenga, pleated and petalled skirt, and a bias cut mermaid silhouette. 
A crimped silk fishtail skirt and a sari-lehenga gave unconventional choices. Cholis were kept tiny and glittering, and the dupattas - some with giant gold flower appliqués -were opulent in their grandeur.  
The breathtaking show ended with model Gaurav Arora as “Krishna”, surrounded by his ‘gopis’ while Neeta walked down the ramp to a thunderous applause.
Beautiful fabrics, intricate craftsmanship, clever construction and that distinct glamorous fashion direction from Neeta Lulla made her “Radha” collection presentedby Forever Jewellery a dream to behold.
