Vizag - 530003
What you see - Walking towards Sampath Vinayak temple from HSBC, just opposite Vinis Mall, a posh boutique with its name in pink caught our attention. This boutique from Deepika and Sunil Agarwal deals in women’s wear and home linen.
A liveried guard opened the door, inviting us into the classy interiors designed by Sunil. While the left-hand corner displays a traditional and trendy mix of home linens and cushions, the right side stocks semi-stitched and stitched salwar suits, kurtis, western tops and dress materials. The central area showcases sarees in a number of varieties from plain to heavy work ones. A contemporary chandelier hanging above adds charm with its golden tinge of light. Huge mirrors are fitted smartly, giving buyers a chance to drape the material and see.
What you get - Blossoms stocks a wide collection of women’s clothing and home linen imported from Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Rajasthan and even Bangkok and Singapore. The designer sarees, kurtis and salwar suits come from professional designers in Mumbai and Delhi.
Sarees here come in varieties like plain / printed crepe, chiffon, printed / embroidered super net and even printed Kota sarees (Rs. 695) from Rajasthan. You will also find some handpicked classic Benarasi sarees that come with zari border and the works (Rs. 1,250 to Rs. 7,000). There are also georgette and semi georgette sarees with finely crafted kundan, jadau, stone and zari work (Rs. 1,500- 10,000).
In dress materials, Blossoms has Kalamkari cotton fabric (Rs. 450-850) apart from designer party wear georgette ones. You can also buy semi-stitched party special kurtis and salwar suits with zari, appliqué, kundan, thread and mirror work. Every design has its catalogue display for you to see the final product. In western wear there are leggings (Rs. 280), short dresses, denims and some tops (Rs. 300-2,000) from Bangkok available even in extra large sizes.
The home linen section has a fine collection of contemporary and traditional provincial specialties. Here you will find single and double bed-sheets with Rajasthan special mirror work and kantha stitch. Rajasthani 100 gm single and double quilts, summer special cotton blankets (Rs. 1,400), export quality nice velvety, raw silk and satin bedcovers (Rs. 1,500-2,600) and cushion covers in small and large sizes are also available. Eye-catching comforters in multiple colors and designs (Rs. 3,000) and large-sized cushions are there too.
Our verdict - Blossoms boutique is definitely one of the best boutiques in Vizag based on its interiors and collection. Unlike other boutiques in the city it has a rest room too. Among all the products, we suggest bedspreads, kurtis, tops, and semi-stitched suits as worth a buy. All designs in women’s wear are available in single pieces only to maintain exclusivity. The trial room is perhaps the biggest in town with wide space inside along with seating arrangement. Parking needs to be done on the main road.
