Collection name – Helen – Easy, breezy yet traditional
My collection Helen aims at bringing out the fun element by the means of including a lot of feather, fringes, and ruffles. It’s so extra.
Absolutely wanting to be felt present.

Collection name – Zuri Sapphire – an Indo-Western amalgamation

I have used freely fabrics and lots of nets & silks to depict the amalgamation of Indian & Western styles. Half of the outfits are inspired from Indian heritage having hand-embroidered while the other half are completely basked in Western culture.
This collection is an Indian and contemporary fusion, striking the right balance between the quintessential Indian heritage craftsmanship and modern form of clothing.

Preeti Goyal has been selected as one of the 100 Women Faces Entrepreneurs of India for the year 2017.
Collection name – Marigold – Bride & bridesmaids drapes
I have named my collection – Marigold, derives its’ inspiration from the layers of a flower. Like a flower, a saree too has drapes and this is what the collection is going to represent. Along with the floral patterns, a lot of layering pattering has been used. This collection brings with it some traditional and alternative ways to drape saree, and switch up a traditional look. This gave us the inspiration for this collection Indian brides and bridesmaid. Each color will take you to some other journey.
Change has been the only constant with Just3Preety and it couldn’t be right than in the case of fashion trends of Indo-western wear. Though, one trend that has held its ground from the beginning is the saree. A clothing that is a true expression of a woman’s beauty, India is a treasure trove of different saree varieties. And that’s not all; each region has a unique saree draping style as well. Sarees can be formal, fun, traditional, and so much more, but always wearing them in one style can make the most attractive and exclusive saree look a bit boring.
For this collection we have handpicked a variety of fabrics from different regions such as Bandhi from Rajasthan, Chanderi from Chanderi, malmal from Benaras, Linen from Calcutta, etc.
Each of the outfit has a story to tell and we hope we have conveyed the story well through our tonight’s collection.

‘NAKKASHI’ – Where Elegance is wrapped in Tradition
The collection Nakkashi depicts different cultures and eras of the rich and diverse Indian art and architecture in the form of intricate Embroideries on Indian Fabrics complimented with vivid tones and textures. Collection portrays an ideal unification of various religions in form of varied embroidered patterns that can be seen through.
‘NAKKASHI’ has been created using Rich ethnic fabrics. It features floral patterns with intricate hand embroidery and embellishments done finely to accentuate each motif in the attire. Each ensemble is ingeniously crafted with unique motifs exuding perfection and grace based more on the royal richness of colors and textures of the fabric that reflects the magnificence of Indian heritage.
My collection’s idea has been derived from the interiors of Indian heritage buildings. So besides using classic handlooms of Banaras, the garments feature computerized embroidery enhanced with a touch of glistening Zardozi and Dabka done delicately by hand and used in perfect balance.
My Indian bridal wear is meant for the new age spirited bride, where the intricate embroidery brings alive the Indian art and architecture in its full bloom.We aim to make our brides conscientious about their surroundings to upkeep the Indian tradition, and in turn, give back to nature and our roots. Drawing inspiration from the interiors of ancient palaces, tombs and temples where vintage meets glamour, charm and elegance, the collection sees a unique interpretation of the Nakkashi, jaaliwork, floral and geometric patterns made with rich hand-woven fabrics, intensive handmade detailing and subtle embellishments. Floor sweeping lehengas and gowns in luxurious colors, on the lines of grandeur befitting the Indian heritage styles- volume, shape and silhouette along with luxe motifs and patterns are impeccable and very reminiscent of the era. The entire collection has been crafted with utmost care keeping them comfortable yet stylish.
Deep hues of maroon, champagne gold accentuated with our signature red and hot pink highlight the collection. I chose these tones to satisfy the urge of today’s bride to look different and at the same time do justice to the prominence of her big day.
