India Today - - SIMPLY PUNJABI BUZZ - By Sukant Deepak

En­ter the store and you are bom­barded with dresses boat­ing of western cuts and fused with In­dian em­bel­lish­ments. From con­cep­tual saris in neon colours to drapes for dif­fer­ent oc­ca­sions, Aliyana by Meena Bazaar, the re­cently in­au­gu­rated store at Sec­tor-17 in Chandigarh prom­ises to be a sat­is­fy­ing and en­rich­ing shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence for the fairer sex. A high-end de­signer bou­tique spread over 5,000 sq ft en­com­passes the best in de­signer lehen­gas, suits, evening gowns and un­stitched fab­rics.

Be­sides clothes, the place also show­cases a whole range of match­ing ac­ces­sories. In­clud­ing hand­bags, shawls and stoles. Aliyana, which is the first of its kind in north In­dia, dis­plays cre­ations by over 50 de­sign­ers from Mum­bai, Kolkata, Delhi, Jaipur and else­where, who are ex­clu- sively work­ing for the brand. “Aliyana of­fers stuff crafted by a bunch of young, ex­cep­tion­ally ta­lented cre­ative team of dy­namic de­sign­ers, well-versed in the art of styling,” says Ra­jnish Jain of Meena Bazaar. It is hard not to no­tice a lot of neon shades in the store. “We’re wit­ness­ing a mas­sive de­mand for neons. Aliyana brings you the out­fits for a mod­ern, stand­out look,” he adds.

The store has theme-based floors, with the ground floor cater­ing to the Indo-western clients. The mez­za­nine floor has an ex­otic col­lec­tion of de­signer suits while the first floor houses a spe­cial stu­dio, solely for the cou­ture range, with an ar­ray of cloth­ing from around the coun­try.
