Avanza – a multi-designer store housing a variety of businesses

Avanza was launched on March 30, in Banani. With a guest list consisting of some of the city’s most elite, an evening tea was hosted by some of the leading designers and entrepreneurs of the country. 

A number of brands have collaborated to establish Avanza. They include Koral Klauset by Rupo Shams – a boutique that offers elegant women’s wear as well as couture pieces, ZRM by Zurhem – a casual line designed for the younger audience, Farzana Yusuf Design Studio – bringing you chic clothing with intricate embroidery, Rubaba’s Closet – creating a fusion of traditional and contemporary designs, Rose by Nizhu – with both casual and party wear, Baheera – a store that offers handcrafted, elegant designs for your wardrobe, Thread Studio – for designer kurtas for men, pyjamas and nightwear, S Footwear – a local brand of quality shoes, MINERVA by Mahjabin Ahmed Shiuly – a store that makes stunning traditional jewellery, Luxe Living and Grey the Gift Shop – both bringing decor pieces to liven up your home, Soema Fragrances – that creates fresh scents using botanical ingredients, and Afterglow - Artisan Soaps & Skin Care Solutions.

Rupo Shams, the owner of Koral Klauset, says she has always believed in bringing in local designers and entrepreneurs together on one platform, in order to preserve our heritage, and also to exhibit the talent that could even be represented internationally. In her words, what sets Avanza apart is that it “celebrates the heritage of the subcontinent and surrounding areas across Asia, creating unique designs inspired by nature, craft, our heritage, romance and wanderlust”.

Avanza comes as a one-stop solution to all your needs, be it for your wardrobe, your skin, or your home. With the variety of products available there, Avanza targets both the niche and walking customers, with an aim to build strong customer loyalty, and focus on providing quality products.

Avanza is located on the sixth floor of Delvista, House 44, Road 12, Banani.
