Andela – A New Store for Women’s & Children’s Western Wear
Andela, a new store for women’s and children’s westerns has just opened its doors in the city of Chennai.
Andela which means Angel in the Czech language is the latest store in town for absolutely hip clothes. “Bid Adieu to boring clothing” says their poster and truly the collection in the store stands out for this tag line. From the trendiest of tops to dresses, the store has a collection of clothes which will certainly push you to lose weight just to fit into them. There is a lovely collection to pick from at absolutely nominal prices. The store is the brain child of Shilpa Singh Thakkar who took a break from her IT career when she had a baby and decided to start the store rather than to go back to the IT world.
“ The nominal prices are the USP of my store and you could pick a top for anything from Rs 300 to Rs 750 and the kids collections begins as low Rs 100 and I hope to maintain these prices always,” says Shilpa. She sources clothes from the US, Colombo and Bangkok and makes personal trips to these countries to choose the clothes. So for all those craving for some latest western wear head to Andela and get Andelicious as she says!
Andela is at shop no 1, Real Towers, No 51-51 Royapettah High road, Mylapore. Ph- 42126770
