BENGALURU:The year 2016 was difficult and at times miserable, going by the  headlines that broke this year.If you are one of those who has had a terrible year too, then there’s better news for you to end 2016 on a high. A shopping high.

Retail therapy can be so much cheaper after all, this is of course if impulse buys are your greatest high and your Instagram feeds are filled with posts from fashion bloggers.
If this is you or a friend of yours, then head to Swanky Souk on December 31 and January 1 before you miss out on this fashion experience in the city.

While everyday department stores can hold hidden gems every once in a while, it does get difficult finding unconventional and quirky designs with clothes and accessories at conventional outlets.
These shopping experiences can also make one feel like one is stuck in a rut, where you can’t seem to find anything that you like.

If you’re a shopaholic who is tired of looking in the same stores, try this flea market that will treat you to quirky designs and trendy stykes in an array of products, from home decor, clothes and shoes to bath and body products.The festival will also host workshops, music and tease your taste buds with delicacies to ensure an electrifying experience.

The Swanky Souk concept is another of The New Indian Express’ endeavour to host an interactive festival for Bengalureans, with an aim to host weekend festivals every fortnight.
