A midsummer day's dream

Striking designs with a touch of luxury in all garments is what every woman desires. With outfits in desirable patterns, trendy styles and affordable prices, ‘Moksh’, a designer brand at Kamaraj Road, aims to satiate all fashion needs of women. 

Vibrant hues

When Asha and husband Rajesh Motwani started the boutique in 2013, she just wanted to meet the demands of style-conscious people who were choosy and liked outfits in the style and colours they wished to wear. “Little did I know that the support from customers and the ever-increasing demand for fashion, would keep us going strong,” says Asha.
She says that though the brand’s focus lies on blouses, lehengas and elegant occasion wear, the brand offers outfits in Indo-Western and ethnic patterns for every woman.

She takes inspiration from designers like Manish Malhotra and Sabyasachi and is an ardent fan of international brands like Chanel. “My designs and garments are in tune to the times and we try to include the colours and fabrics according to the season. Our garments are mostly in pure fabrics like chiffon, georgette and silk etc,” she says.

Asha strongly believes that the cut and the style of the garment decides the success of a look. “Our blouses have deep and attractive cuts, which change the look on a whole,” she says. Most of her outfits include handwork like ‘kundan’, ‘nakshi’, ‘zardozi’ and ‘pita’ details. “We also do an exclusive work on garments, called the ‘knot work’. Each design of ours is grand in its own self,” says Asha.

Be it skirts, gowns or suits -- the slits, silhouettes and work on them, determine a lot about each look. From bright colours like red, blues and parrot greens to pastels, the brand houses everything for every occasion that one can think of. “We have mix and match options too, so that the customer can decide on what to walk out with,” she says.
“True to the name of the brand, ‘Moksh’ means salvation and the boutique aims to provide complete fashion options, so that a customer walks out feeling like all her needs have been fulfilled,” Asha sums up. The store is located at No 311, Kamraj Road, off Commercial Street.
