Western wear for women is available at Park Avenue
There is a new address for women looking to effect some sartorial changes. Park Avenue, and all those images of well dressed men come rushing in…it is now time for a change of perception. There is now Park Avenue Woman. Yes, for the nattily dressed woman.
Those women who have been on the lookout for decent western wear that doesn’t look like upholstery can now heave a sigh of relief. Work wear or leisure wear, further classified as formal wear, day wear and evening wear, whichever it is that you want are available at the Raymond showroom at MG Road.
The styles are contemporary, the fabrics trendy and the styles truly international. Gone are the days of dowdy western wear. Shirts, skirt suits, trousers, jackets, dresses, tunics…the whole works. Dresses, day wear and evening wear (cocktail dresses), are chic.
Although there is no abundance of garments there is a lot to choose from. The fabrics range from cotton/linen, polysatin lycra, silk, satins, satin jacquards and polyester blends. Unlike the stereotypical notion of western wear for women being all boring, sans the colours and textures of Indian garments, Park Avenue Woman plays a lot with surface embellishments – yokes, tapes, embroideries – and various other kinds of detailing adds drama to the garments which otherwise could very easily have been boring. Shawl collars, casino collars, pin tucks, jacquards are some of the other elements in terms of styling and patterns. You can up the style quotient at work too with box pleated skirts, waist coats (embroidered and otherwise), waist coats with racer backs and even halter waistcoats, pencil trousers, denims…you are sure to find something that you are looking for.
Prices start at Rs. 899 and the sizes start from extra small to double XL.SHILPA NAIR ANAND
