New Delhi [India], Oct 01 : Ace Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal is all set to walk on the fashion runway for her "favourite" designer Neeta Lulla.
Lulla will be the grand finale designer for Bangalore Times Fashion Week on October 8 and the muse for the designer's grand showcase will be Nehwal.
Nehwal, who will be seen in a sensational avatar for the very first time, will be playing the role of an Edwardian Elegante on the glitzy runway making her look and feel like a quintessential luxe of art.
Elated Saina said, "I am very excited to be walking for one of my favourite designers, Neeta Lulla. I believe she is going to experiment a lot with my look and I'm quite excited to see the magic she creates." The astute drape of fabric, tiered silhouettes and the flow and fall of the ensembles will mirror the gracefulness of the bespoke garments.
The models will be sporting jewellery by N. S. Jewellers. The four-time national award winner, Lulla said, "I wanted to showcase how two ideologies and two concepts can seamlessly co-exit, in this case sport and fashion, and there was no better fit that than Saina Nehwal." The veteran designer will be premiering her brand's new affordable wedding range- 'N Pret' from the iconic retail powerhouse, The House of Neeta Lulla, at the fashion week.
The USP of 'N Pret' is its ability to fuse western and ethnic silhouettes, prints and designs catering to varied taste.
The event will see some of the best names in fashion including Pria Kataria Puri, Narendra Kumar and Shravan Kumar, Manoviraj Khosla apart from Neeta Lulla.
