New fashion store - Uniq

Slipa shettyChennai, always known as the destination of tradition and customs is now going vogue! Actress turned business woman, Sona Heiden of Sivapathikaram, Kuselan fame has launched her brand recently called Uniq- an international fashion accessory store right here at Chennai.

To add to the glitz, Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty was flown from Mumbai for the launch at Taj Coromandel. Uniq will have handbags, belts, footwear, hats, scarves, rings, ear rings, nose rings, stomach rings, chains, bangles, anklets, sunglasses and much more both for men and women. All these accessories are hand picked by Sona from Singapore and other countries and the best part is no two pieces are alike. Says Sona, "I have hand picked very selective brands that will suit the tastes of Chennaities. I can assure you that no two pieces will be similar.

In fact, I have seen to it that not two pairs of footwear are similar." Sona also said that there will be only one size of footwear's, so the lucky ones get the best ones!

So how did she plan to enter into business from cinema? "I always like to have some control over things and want to stand on my own. I also wanted to do something that interests me and that is why I entered into business, though I will also be doing films side by side. I have quite a few offers in my kitty. Business is my second part of my life and my career." Sona is also planning to open Uniq in other metros by next year and she says with ease that she can manage both business and cinema, as technology has improved so much, she can as well keep in touch with everything regularly. So which will be her first priority? Cinema or Uniq? "Well, films are definitely my first priority." She says with a smile.
