Pashmina To Raw Silk: This Store Sells Pakistani Couture & They Are Gorgeous
What Makes It Awesome
Tucked in a corner inside Babu Khan Estate, Mushi Designers stocks a collection of Pakistani brands. Earlier called the Jammu and Kashmir Emporium, this store has been around for six years but has moved on from selling handicrafts from Jammu and Kashmir to Pakistani fashion. This store’s pile is anything but regular. Lawn and Chiffon fabrics with intricate embroidery work and pleasant colours to fit any mood can be found here. Think kurtis, kaftans, suits, sarees, and jackets (Of raw silk and wool). We say skip the sarees and jackets in favour of suits and kaftans that will leave you heart-eyed. Check out this casual print from Noor by Saadia Asad and this classy design from Qalamkar Luxury that you can buy and get stitched. With imports coming in every 15 days, pick from over 30 brands (like Charizma, Agha Noor, Gul Ahmed and Zara Shah Jahan). With prices starting at INR 1,700, these will be an investment if you buy plenty!
A section of the store sells Kashmiri/Pashmina shawls, hand-woven and in earthy colours. So, if you’re looking for a gift for your grandma or want one yourself, head here. These come with floral motifs, and traditional designs as well as in solid colours. Apart from all the imports from Pakistan and Kashmir, this store also has its own designs under the tag of Mushi. Comfortable nightwear kaftans in free size and kurtas of vibrant colours that you can rock to college are their original designs and manufactured here in Hyderabad.
