Abhishti is a Delhi-based boutique that's got a bunch of pretty casual kurtis, printed palazzos, tunics, dresses and asymmetrical skirts too. For someone who loves ethnic clothes but can't afford Anokhi every other day, this brand could be a good alternative.
Abhishti opens up a whole world of comfy ethnic clothing. They've been around for almost six years, offering artsy clothes made by craftsmen from Benaras, Chennai, Bagru and from various other parts of India. Coming to their collection, it ranges from block-printed ethnic crop tops and simple kalamkari anarkalis to embroidered blouses and suit sets for dressy occasions. If you're someone who can't get enough of indigo and bagru prints, you'd want to fill your closet with Abhishti's tunics, flowy dresses and kurtis.
We had our heart set on a full-sleeved indigo top but bought the cute, Peter Pan collar crop-top instead because it seemed like a better deal. They've also got pretty dupattas, skirts in solid colours and basic leggings that are perfect for someone who likes to mix and match ethnic outfits.
They have a physical store in North Delhi if you fancy a visit. Alternatively, check out their website to shop online (or get some of it on LBB). They promise to deliver in 24 hours (within Delhi NCR) and ship across other cities as well.
