On October 31, Jio World Plaza (JWP), a remarkable retail destination located in the bustling heart of Mumbai’s Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC), opened its doors to the public with a grand ceremony. The event was attended by the who’s who from the world of films, fashion and business, who witnessed a spectacular performance by renowned designers.
JWP is a part of the Jio World Centre, a mega project by Reliance Industries Limited that also includes the Nita Mukesh Ambani Cultural Centre, the Jio World Convention Centre, and the Jio World Garden. The project aims to redefine the luxury shopping and entertainment experience in India.
A Masterpiece of Retail, Leisure and Dining
JWP spans four levels and a vast area of 7,50,000 square feet. It boasts an impressive array of 66 luxury brands, with several notable international brands making their debut in the Indian market, such as Balenciaga, Giorgio Armani Café, Pottery Barn Kids, Samsung Experience Centre, EL&N Café, and Rimowa.
Mumbai will welcome its first stores of Valentino, Tory Burch, YSL, Versace, Tiffany, Ladurée, and Pottery Barn, alongside flagship stores of iconic brands like Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Cartier, Bally, Giorgio Armani, Dior and Bulgari.
JWP will also be a haven for renowned Indian designers like Manish Malhotra, Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla, Rahul Mishra, Falguni and Shane Peacock, and Ri By Ritu Kumar, among others.
The Plaza’s architectural design, inspired by the lotus flower and other elements of nature, has been brought to life through a collaboration between the international architecture and design firm, TVS, headquartered in the United States.
Marble-clad floors, soaring vaulted ceilings, and artful lighting create an ambience that exemplifies the essence of luxury. Sculptural columns are meticulously placed, weaving design continuity into the fabric of the space.
A Destination for Culture and Entertainment
Visitors will be greeted by a contemporary sculpture by Jitish Kallat on the first level. Entertainment offerings on the third level include a multiplex theatre and a gourmet food emporium, in addition to world-class restaurants.
Services such as personal shopping assistance, VIP concierge, taxi-on-call, wheelchair services, hands-free shopping with baggage drop, butler service, and baby strollers further enhance the Plaza’s commitment to the consumer.
“Our envisioning of the Jio World Plaza is aimed at bringing the best global brands to India as well as highlighting the prowess and craftsmanship of top Indian brands,” said Isha Ambani, Director of Reliance Industries Limited.
“The Jio World Plaza is more than a retail destination, it’s an embodiment of aesthetics, culture, and leisure,” she added.
