Mumbai: Ace fashion designer Neeta Lulla, who will present her collection 'Radha' at the Lakme Fashion Week here, says it is a fusion of Indian and Western sensibilities, mirroring feminity and grace.

"Radha has always been a symbol of grace and she is the epitome of beauty and romance. This seemed to be a huge inspiration for my creation for this season. It is this feminity and grace that I would like to depict in my collection," Lulla said in an interview.

"I believe that there is a Radha in every woman. Through this collection, I want to invoke every woman's inner Radha. I have depicted Radha's many moods and avatars and the jewellery belnds in perfectly with the outfits to bring this to life," she said.

As the name Radha suggests, it seems the collection will be traditional but the designer says there some western cuts. "The collection is Indian in its essence through its
textures and fabrics and has western cuts in its silhouettes. It is a fusion that looks romantic and graceful," she said.

Lulla's collection has always attracted big names from Bollywood. When asked who will be her Radha (show stopper), she said, "I won't say much, you have to wait and watch."

Elaborating on the collection Lulla said, "there are a variety of colours... the concept on each outfit is colour blocking with 2-3 colours...the collection is colourful and festive in its mood."

"In case of jewelry, there will be pure 22 carat gold mimics with creamy sandalwood like complexion, pink tourmalines in kundan blush and vivid meenakari," Lulla said.

 "There will be kangans, baju bandhs adorned with uncut diamonds and precious stones set in classic floral patterns," she said. The five-day fashion extravaganza starts on August 3 at a suburban five star hotel.
