    "Working with Neeta marked not only the beginning of a professional relationship, but a personal one too! I was on the lookout for the best and no one else came to mind. Her stunning work showcased in Bollywood films including Devdas and Jodha Akbar left me awe-struck and absolutely inspired.

Her impeccable talent, coupled with the tremendous amount of love she has for her craft, brought about my inner beauty to the forefront. Overall, it’s not just about wearing her garment, it’s about being a part of her legacy." - Surbhi, a Neeta Lulla bride

    "You can re-wear your heavy embroidered bridal lehenga by pairing it with a pristine white blazer. Given the immense volume of the lehenga that speaks for itself, the contemporary, chic blazer strikes the perfect balance, offsetting the gilded glamour. Pair this look with minimal accessories and you're good to go!"

    "One of the most versatile elements of an Indian ensemble, the bridal dupatta can be re-worn in several ways. You may choose to drape the dupatta over a vibrant co-ord set or jumpsuit to make a statement, or can layer it over a blazer and pants for a work-festive attire. To achieve a more dramatic, edgy vibe, you can convert your dupatta into a jacket or a cape too!"
