Ten-second takeaway

Making her way to the city {she is originally from Mumbai}, Zara Umrigar brings feminine colours, vintage cuts and flirty silhouettes to her eponymous store

Luxury fashion boutique Zara Umrigar in Bangalore

Back in time

A haven for the girly girl, Zara Umrigar’s store in Nandidurga Road is exactly like her: subtle and stylish. The vintage look of the store, in white and antique gold, suits the clothes perfectly, and you’ll want to play dress up all day long. Focussing on classic cuts, you’ll find that her dresses are far from run-of-the-mill. Think pretty chiffons with bold hand embroidery or net gowns that are edgy and sexy. Her new collection ranges from fully embroidered gowns {intricate sequins and hand-work more} to minimalist ones and a host of cocktail gowns. Plus, big ball gowns, in vibrant reds, pinks and striking black, for the Cinderella in you.

Star attraction

Worn by the likes of Kareena Kapoor-Khan, Bipasha Basu and even Sonakshi Sinha, Umrigar’s forte is attention to detail. We love that flowy floor-length dresses are jazzed up by black bustiers, or that her skirts take the bling a notch up and the tops keep it simple and chic. Fabric is mainly net, chiffon and crepe.

So if you’re a non-conformist dresser and want to strike the balance between elegance and edge, you best make your way to her store, max out your credit card, and then when your funds spike again, she’ll have her pret line of fun skirts, dresses and tops ready for you! And don’t say we didn’t give you fare warning to save up, because she’s going online soon too. Did we mention that it is located above a luxury spa (The Palms Spa), making it the perfect combination for a day well spent?
