Neeta Lulla designs for Ivanka Trump
The ace designer is drawing inspiration from traditional motifs from Indian classical music and from the Vrindavan gardens
Designer Neeta Lulla has been commissioned to design an outfit for US President Donald Trump’s daughter and adviser Ivanka Trump, who amidst tight security arrived on Tuesday to attend the Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) in Hyderabad.
Lulla said in a statement: “As stylish and elegant as Ms. Trump is, her ensemble too will be intricate and exquisite. We are honoured to present an exclusive bespoke collectable inspired from the Vrindavan Symphony which is our tribute to the celebrated Radha-Krishna fable.”
A national award-winning designer, has ensured Indian elements are used in all their glory in the outfit for Ivanka Trump. “It has a motif of the traditional musical instrument sitar, which has its roots… in classical music… and is inspired by the Vrindavan Gardens where the impeccable portrayal of the divine romance was performed as ‘Raas Leela’. We have created a signature ensemble using the traditional sari restyled into an elegant gown," she said to sources. The designer has earlier dressed Steven Seagal, Tyra Banks, The Chainsmokers and DJ KSHMR in her creations. The ensemble is set to have fabrics evolving from “deep-rooted cultures in India with a state-of-the-art silhouette to create a tailored ensemble”.
The theme for this year’s meet is “Women First, Prosperity for All”. A total of 1,200 delegates, most of them women, will be a part of the summit. A number of leading female voices will speak at various plenaries, breakout sessions, master classes, and workshops, including tennis champion Sania Mirza, Google's Vice President of Next Billion Users Diana Louise Patricia Layfield and CEO of Afghan Citadel Software Company Roya Mahboob
