Top 6 Indie Shops To Shop For In Seawoods Grand Central In Navi Mumbai

    We’re always on the lookout for homegrown brands and small businesses that have something great to offer at affordable prices. Found yourself at Seawoods Grand Central on/around payday? Here’s where you can put those paper notes to good use by supporting these indie brands.

    The Studio

    The Studio

    Nerul, Mumbai

    Located on the Lower Ground Floor of the mall, The Studio’s got beautiful kalamkari, pochampally, ikkat, upada, mangalgiri and venkatgiri work, with fabrics that are fashioned into blouses, tops, tunics, angarakhas and jackets. The best part? They can have any design tailored for you, as per size and taste. Their range starts at INR 700.

    Kala Collection

    This store’s got reasonably priced cotton tops, kurtis and dupattas that are office-ready and super comfy to wear. We also spotted some vibrant cotton saaris and summery dresses here, too. Uber affordable, the range begins at INR 500.

    Fashion Bricks

    Junk jewellery holds a special spot in our hearts. Fashion Bricks stocks oxidised rings, earrings, studs and bracelets, all at a steal. They also sell fun sunglasses (think hot pink aviators, and uber reflective cat-eye pairs in quite a few colours.) Don’t forget to bargain! We bought a statement ring from here for INR 100, and most of the jewellery costs around the same amount.

    KaPra Fashion

    What drew us into this store was the stunning display of dressy gowns. What kept us was the collection of gorgeous blouses, bespoke two-piece outfits, and the jewellery! They had colourful jhumkas, tasselled earrings and oxidised silver jewellery, too. We were super tempted to co-ordinate them with our outfits. The range starts at INR 700. One of our favourite clothing pieces was a kurti with a rickshaw design sewn onto it in beadwork.

    Amukti

    We walked right into this store because of its desi minimalist aesthetic. Amukti sells lovely cotton kurtas, elegant printed dupattas and earth-toned churidars to complement them, all INR 1500 onwards. You might’ve spotted them at the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival this year!

    Balzo - Collections in Silver

    Balzo

    Available Online
    If you find that your wardrobe is fairly up to date, Balzo is a great store to buy classy silver jewellery. Their display’s filled with chunky silver rings, pretty earrings and demure bracelets. They’ve got quirky designs, too - think leopard heads and floral patterns.
    Head to their kiosk on the 2nd level to take a look! Want a simple pair of earrings to start? It'll cost you INR 700 and up.
