Inspira is a souk for everything contemporary and chic and the 20 something designers have a passion for colours, cuts and fabrics, their primary focus since the time they launched has been to assist their clients have an appropriate wardrobe for every occasion.

“No personality is complete without the explicit expression of one’s attitude, and your wardrobe is the most important form that this expression. Today there are a plethora of labels available. But not everyone can afford them. So we keep the latest trends in mind and and design clothes that would suit the sensibilities of today’s woman at extremely affordable prices,” says designer Smitha Rao, who worked at ffolio for two years and later did a short term course at NIFT (National Institute of Fashion Technology) before she started Inspira with her cousin. 

The duo took us through their ethnic creations of exquisite sarees, salwars, and fancy dresses. We saw a whole range of embellished sarees in georgettes, chiffons, brocades and nets. We loved the way the designers played with different hues and concepts. The sarees were simple yet stylish and they had an array of designs from embellished borders to fancy motifs which would make for a perfect ensemble for a family wedding. Their range of salwar suits mainly comprised anarkali’s in nets. The detailing on the garments was neat and we loved the heavy range of salwar suits which made for perfect evening attire.

The cuts were flattering and our pick definitely would be the deep back anarkali. “Building a wardrobe for every occasion is a difficult task considering the wide variety of choices we have. We try keeping ourselves abreast with the latest trends both nationally and internationally,” says Smitha who defines her style as quite feminine. After scanning though the whole range of ethnic wear we later found ourselves at a section dedicated to dresses. It was a breather from all the flamboyance but then we were a tad disappointed because the dresses were in bright colours and there was nothing summery about them. But a litlle bit of shine and shimmer is always good for that summer evening!
There outfits are priced from 4000 onwards. You can check there page on Facebook
