Designer Abhinav Mishra’s clothes offer a different kind of shine, not the one that comes from heavy embroidery, embellishments and sequins. After the success of his recent couture collection, Mehzabeen, Mishra, who is known for his signature mirror-work and gota, recently launched his flagship store in Delhi. Located in Chhatarpur, the shop is inspired by the havelis of Lucknow, and is full of mirrors and hand-painted bougainvillaeas.—SL
