Sitara at Shahpur Jat

People go to shop in Shahpur Jat Market for Bridal Lehengas and Gowns. There are several shops selling wedding trousseau – gowns, bridal lehengas, anarkali suits and bridal saris.

The surprise: A Non-Bridal Wear Shop

As we were walking past the bridal wear shops, we unexpectedly came across ‘Sitara’ (meaning stars) It was a cute little shop with a splash of orange on the wall. There was no bridal couture. On display were colourful kurtas, kurtis and Kolhapuri chappal’s (sandals). On the other side were long flowing drape kurtas that are ideal to be paired with shararas and palazzo pants.  What made them interesting were the colours, the play of textures and embroidery, handcrafted Kutch mirror work, the ikaat and Kalamkari paintings juxtaposed with designs and styles from Pakistan & Afghanistan. Ruchika has crafted these pieces by mixing and matching styles and sensibilities. Detailing is a fine art. It is an inspiration to see the mix & match of textiles from different cultures and different.

Afghani & Pakistani Inspiration

Enumeration, they bring out a subtle gypsy sensibility to the dresses. Each dress follows its own creative rules and there are no set pattern to the dresses. A mustard kurta with Afghani inspired red and green embroidery all along the front panel or a black  dress in super fine cotton  with a  patchwork of bold  red and yellow flowers on the side panels with colourful tassles are a few of the stand out pieces. That is the beauty of shopping in Sitara. Each garment is styled differently and is hence an exclusive piece. The dresses are in the range of Rs.3000 to Rs.20, 000/piece. They can be worn as a dress or paired with your own palazzos or straight pants to create a new look. Tops are in the Rs. 3000 to Rs. 5000 price range. They are also designed in rather interesting styles with patchwork embroidery or Kalamakri painting as the centre panel.

Stylish Kolhapuri Chappals

At first, what caught our attention was the display of Kolhapuri chappals with the most creative and interesting embellishments. What Ruchika, the owner, does is something out of the ordinary? She buys chunky pieces of jewellery from Tibet and Rajasthan and deftly blends them into the straps of the Kolhapuri chappals. So, what have you, chunky silver pendants, colourful beads, silver anklets or an orange Tibetan bracelet adorning your beautiful feet. Kolhapuri chappals are soft and comfortable on the feet and with the added ethnic accessories, they are unique. Pair them with simple cottons and you look stylish in an instant. At Rs. 3000/pair, they are a steal.

The focus of this shop ‘Sitara’ is to showcase the ethnic crafts from interior parts of India. The prices are very very reasonable. Heavily worked kurtas @ Rs. 15000/piece on an average is a steal. Go and grab it. They could cost you twice as much in other shops.
