Empowering the leading ladies of Colombo, one outfit at a time

Located in the heart of Colombo, Boutique at Horton Place is looking to revolutionise the way the ladies of Colombo shop. This upscale concept boutique hopes to empower women from all walks of life while helping them to fulfil their inner fashionista desires.

Boutique at Horton Place is the result of Tahira Areeb’s passion to equip leading ladies with the perfect wardrobe that will help them stay true to themselves as they take on the world.

Tahira, the Fashion Designer and Chief Executive Officer of Boutique at Horton Place, hopes to capitalise on Colombo’s increasing interest in fashion by providing them with a unique boutique store concept that she expects, will revolutionise the fashion arena. Her dream came to fruition on 3 November, with the store that was in the works since 2016, finally opening to the public.

The launch took place at the store’s premises, preceded by a fashion show. Models draped in brightly coloured shalwars, kurthas, and dresses took to the runway to give us a taste of what was in store for everyone looking to shop at the Boutique.

Vibrancy and glamour was undoubtedly the name of the game as each piece showcased Tahira’s style of mixing in contrasting patterns and colours, complemented by sequins, beads and intricate embroidery work. If the glitz and glam of the evening wear isn’t your cup of tea, the few casual pieces in the mix assured us that everyone can find something that suits their taste.

The store itself showcased a variety of women’s clothes and kids wear along with Tahira’s own pieces. The boutique is truly a paradise for more conservative shoppers as most of the clothing items succeed in being elegant and stylish, while not revealing too much skin, something many shops in Colombo have yet to accomplish. You will also be able to find the right statement jewellery to complete any outfit courtesy of Hotspot CMB.

The boutique is home to quite a large collection of makeup and skincare products from premier beauty brands. They also provide a number of stationery items and home accessories, ranging from decorative flower arrangements to cushions, and even kitchen items.

For anyone looking to splurge on elegant and luxurious evening wear, the Boutique at Horton Place is the place to go.
The premises also houses 24seven, the convenience store that’s open all day to indulge your midnight cravings, and the Peppermint Café, an independent counter service café, serving coffee, made from Sri Lankan mountain-grown arabica beans, and American diner-style cuisine.
