Renowned Indian designer Neeta Lulla designed outfits for international music artists Wiz Khalifa and Jason Derulo for their debut India tour for New Year's Eve party in Vagator, Goa.
Wiz Khalifa, DJ Martin Garrix and Jason Derulo performed at the multi-genre music festival "Time Out 72" in Goa bringing in the new year.
In a statement, Lulla said, "I wanted to give a lot of focus to Indian heritage and craftsmanship. I was inspired by the bold shapes, geometrical motifs and ethnic designs from an era that articulates lineage and have utilised them in the outfits in a more contemporary fashion."
She added, "For the outfits created for Wiz Khalifa and Martin Garrix, we derived our muse from Rabari women who are an indigenous tribal caste from Gujarat. They diligently do embroidery on textiles as an expression of creativity, aesthetics and identity. For Jason Derulo, we have focussed on our Vrindavan Symphony collection which highlights the Radha-Krishna narrative. The floral temple motifs inspired from the Vrindavan forests and the musical instruments like tabla, sarangi sitar are the motifs synthesised to create a youthful contemporary outfit."
Khalifa was seen wearing a bottle green outfit with digitised Kutchi mirror work butisplaced all over the classic asymmetric kurta in silk while Derulo adorned an asymmetrical grey kurta in jersey fabric with the 'Rudraveena' print.
DJ Martin Garrix wore a bomber jacket with digitised Kutch mirror embroidery and digital geometric patterns with a western silhouette.
Neeta Lulla had earlier dressed US President Donald Trump's daughter and adviser Ivanka Trump and singers Akon, The Chainsmokers and DJ KSHMR in her creations.
