With old GI pipes for hangers, antique furniture, beautiful vintage chandeliers, terracotta flooring and a lot of stunning wall murals, the store is one of a kind. The space includes a spacious trial room with life size mirrors for clients to admire themselves in the designer’s unique pieces.

“I am someone who loves the mere sight of flowers; leave alone their fragrance and their contribution to the aesthetics of a place. My collection is inspired by my admiration for flowers. From peonies to baby’s breath I have incorporated all kinds of flowers in my designs in the form of motifs and patterns. For men, I will be using a lot of unconventional elements like sheer, frills and drapes” explains Ashwin Thiyagarajan about his launch collection.
