India Archives Pt 2 - Working With Women, for Women
Neetu is a dear old friend and partner of our creative director, and a talented seamstress and businesswoman. She has overcome challenges as well as taken chances to build her business, find her freedom and make her dreams come true.After dedicating years to a larger fashion house, she branched out to start her own love project and follow a lifelong calling. This newly claimed independence has allowed her to nurture her relationship with Bo & Luca and add new meaning to what truly reflects women supporting women.
Each design's fabric is stretched tight within a wooden frame to make it easier to work on.
There was no denying that she cared about ethical work production and ensuring positive energy within her space, where a picture on her wall read, “Your brand should be a reflection of you and your dream customer.”This rang so true to us, as our brides emulate and exude everything that we love and strive to capture within the pieces that we create with them in mind; free-spirited, romantic, daring, and unique.
There’s something special about the intention behind human hands crafting and translating designs onto the pieces, and we think it’s the trust that each entity has in the mastery making it honest work. Between artisan and fabric, there is a harmonious understanding which materialises into heirloom wedding gowns.For instance, with the Sinatra gown which entails over 280 hours of hand-beading, each bead is stitched through a labour of love into a story of hope and a promise of forever.
