Six labels from Ahmedabad

How many times have you experienced this?

You spend one hour surfing through online sites and scrolling down till you find the perfect outfit in the favourite colour; after checking it out thoroughly you add it to the shopping cart and eventually when you are about to check out, a faint realisation strikes and argues ‘Hey, this is expensive. It can wait for the next month’.

You exit the site without buying.

Familiar right?

While we don’t mind splurging once in a while, we all tend to stick to our budgets. Finding affordable fashion is a mammoth task for most of us. It is a serious effort to scour through the local markets, surf through umpteen sites and finally freeze on that one particular brand that is not only high on fashion quotient but is also pocket-friendly.

Ciceroni Team brings you High Street Fashion under INR 1500 from six eclectic designers based out of Ahmedabad. They are trendy, bohemian, chic and handcrafted; most importantly all these designers are promoting Indian crafts & textiles in contemporary styles.
