Daring brands, expert staff, extreme looks and bridal dresses for women who aren't interested in being princesses.
Lots has been said about Platja d'Aro in recent years, but it's the shops like this one that mean the town is still the capital of shopping on the Costa Brava. When in Girona the women were still going to university with high heels and twinsets (and we promise that wasn't so long ago), here you could find dresses from Jean Paul Gaultier and Palladium trainers. It's a true mark of modernity that cheers up Sunday afternoons, because, let's not forget, for a long time one of the few options for using up those final hours of the weekend was to go and check out the shops in Platja d'Aro.
The staff are expert and have a lot of charm - they help you with all the authority earned from years of dressing people in the most daring outfits in the province. Aura has always gone for more extreme bridal dresses, perfect for those women who've never dreamed of being princesses; and for some years now the shop has combined such stock with more formal but just as appealing labels, such as Hugo Boss.
