Husband-and-wife team Sachin and Babi Ahluwalia opened their second Ankasa store at 55A Main Street on Monday. The store will feature their resort and beach home collections as well as their new ready-to-wear line, Sachin and Babi for Ankasa, to which they’ve added a range of hand-embroidered tunics for their new tunic-loving clientele.

OSCAR MINIS: Oscar de la Renta launched a line of girls’ dresses in its Melrose Place boutique last weekend with a shopping party for fans of mommy-and-me dressing. The pint-size shifts, in floral prints matching some of the women’s dresses, retail for $200 to $350, with $100 from the sale of each dress donated to the Children’s Defense Fund. Moms Malaak Compton-Rock (wife of Chris) and Laura Wasserman were on hand with their daughters, as well as Katherine Ross, Elizabeth Stewart and Liseanne Frankfurt, who said, “It’s all good until they turn nine, then they become more interested in your clothes.”
