| Class Apart - the boutique with a huge range of fashion essentials starting
from readymade casuals and designer wear to cosmetics
and handbags also has a tailoring unit, which makes
it a complete fashion unit.
Located at Banjara Hills, Class Apart was started
a couple of months ago by Zahira Khan. It
is small but an adequately furnished shop. On entering
the boutique, one finds a fine collection of salwar-kameez
and ghaghras made of materials like net, lace, silk,
tussar, crepe, embellished with embroidery, beads
and sequins. The boutique has a tie-up with 'Masque'
of Mumbai which supplies the designer
wear. Some of the designer wear have intricate patterns
and motifs on silks, georgettes and tussars. The
price ranges from Rs. 1500 to Rs. 3000. Beautifully
embroidered (mostly zardozi work) ghagra-cholis
are also available here.
There is an option to place orders for the ghargas
in whatever colour scheme and design you want. The
tailoring unit also alters the dresses to your specifications.
As far as casual and daily wear goes, the boutique
stocks plenty of cottons, mostly handloom, Lizy-bizy
and some Hakoba. One can pick up readymades
for Rs. 600 onwards in cotton, and the Lizy-bizy
suits with a chiffon dupatta cost Rs. 700.
One of the exclusive items in Class Apart is handbags.
All the branded and non-branded varieties of handbags
are available at the outlet. The cosmetic range
comprising lipsticks, nail enamels, eyeliners, moisturisers,
is restricted to a few popular brands like Maybelline,
Revlon, Lakme and Elle. One can find
the different varieties of Silver rings, hair bands
and clips. "Plans with more designers from
Mumbai and New Delhi are on the anvil. We are looking
for more clothes in the economy range particularly
from New Delhi," said Zahira's husband
Shopping at Class Apart is really an experience
to be cherished, and is as special and distinguished
as the name signifies.
