Anavila Misra Launches Her First Flagship Store in Mumbai

By  | 

Known for making handloom saris and linen textiles cool again, designer Anavila Misra is a popular name amidst Bollywood’s who’s who. So, it was no surprise that when she opened the doors to her first-ever flagship store in Mumbai, all her lovely filmy patrons would show up in support.

Tucked away in one of he bylanes of Khar, the store reflects Anavila’s design aesthetic — classy, minimalistic and subtle. The much-awaited launch was attended by the likes of Sonam Kapoor, Kiran Rao, Sayani Gupta, Swara Bhaskar, Avantika Khan, Tisca Chopra, Maria Goretti, Mini Mathur and lots more, most of whom were spotted in stunning Anavila creations.

The designer is known for her use of soft natural textiles in subtle shades with dreamy silhouettes and is a favourite among her sari-wearing Bollywood clientele. Sonam Kapoor, one of the first to arrive to join in the merriment, was seen in a classic Anavila white handwoven linen sari with gold detailing and a beautiful hand-blockprinted linen blouse. “I am very excited to be here in support of an incredible designer and, of course, also in support of handloom,” said Sonam. “I am so glad that Anavila is making such stunning and modern clothes. I hope all the young people wear these beautiful saris, too.”

We can’t wait to get our hands on one of these coveted pieces. Scroll on to see who attended the launch party.
