About Green Street: Fashion, Jewellery and Beauty

Mani Kohli - Green StreetExplore the heritage of Green street and its most prominent businesses that were established here: Mani Kohli, an international fashion designer who opened her first store, Khubsoorat Collection in 1985, the Bhanji Gokaldas’ family who opened a jewellery store on Green Street in 1987 with their current store PureJewels run by the 3rd generation of the family and Neelam Modi who established Neelams Hair & Beauty salon in Green street over 20 years ago. 

All three businesses have paved the way and made Green street what it is today – now the number one Asian fashion destination and internationally renowned wedding destination where people come from afar for their bespoke bridal clothing, jewellery, hair and make-up. Learn more from the individuals and families that developed their businesses here on Green street, through the records below.
