Decked out in an elegant monochrome colour palette, @35 is a recently launched multi-designer boutique on Gurusaday Road. Started by friends Uzma Ahmed and Mariam Asif, the 700sqft store houses three brands — U by Uzma, Mariuz-couture and pret, and The Tiny Treasure, offering a one-stop solution from apparel and accessories to gifting under one roof. “I have been in the apparel business for a long time. Mariam, a young friend of mine, started her brand Mariuz, which is catering specifically to the younger generation and my brand U by Uzma caters to a diverse age group. So, we thought of bringing the two labels together and starting a one-stop store for a convenient shopping experience for our patrons and the city people,” said Uzma Ahmed.
The fashion boutique housing two womenswear apparel labels and a luxury gifting brand aims to provide bespoke fashion and occasion wear solutions for the contemporary women. “We want to enrich the fashion experience of the women of today, who are are evolved and are ready to embrace their individuality and are constantly experimenting with their sense of style and redefining their fashion boundaries. We chose this location as it is conveniently located with a parking facility. It is a prime location and we aim to provide complete customised solutions for the wedding or any kind occasions, starting from the trousseau to invites and gifting,” said Uzma Ahmed (left) and Mariam Asif, co-owners, @35.
