What Makes It Awesome
Bridging the gap between Indian and modern contemporary cuts, designer duo (and childhood BFFs) Anu and Susan make clothes that are perfect for the country’s tropical weather. What we loved most about their collection is that all of their clothes are easy, breezy, summery, and full of vibrant colours. Head into their shop, Astara in Ulsoor to check out their ensemble of stylish bags, embroidered belts and lovely dresses.
If you’re all about letting go of just-for-the-occasion glitz and glitter, and taking up timeless, spirited colours that are painstakingly dyed and designed in handloom fabrics, Astara is just the store for you! We love the overall bohemian vibe of their outfits and how versatile each piece is. Look out for delicate batik work from Assam, tribal hand-embroidery patches, whimsical stitch lines and other tiny little additions that make your outfit look fresh and fun. You could also easily transform their tunics and dresses by pairing them up with chic boots or leather jackets.
Prices start from INR 5,500 for cotton dresses and INR 8,500 upwards for silk. If you want a custom piece, Anu and Susan will guide you with the fabrics and colours, and you can get your dress customised to the T at the store. What’s more, since they focus on making flattering cuts, you’ll be able to make alterations in store and also find special cuts for plus-sizes.
Anu and Susan frequently participate in exhibitions, so keep a lookout on their social media channels to stay updated and get discounts.
