This thread has been started for member jaz

I was just wondering if anyone knew of any decent Saree/Indian Clothes shops in the Delhi Area? My sister is coming from England and wants to buy 3 or 4 fashionable/designer sarees and wants me to find out where the best places are but l have no idea and no one l know here has a clue! I have heard of Centaur Mall being a fashion style mall but does it exist and if so where? Shes looking to spend around Rs10,000 to Rs15,000 per saree so nothing too extortionate (went to this one posh place and it was Rs60k!). Shes doesn't like things too jazzy (with lots of embroidary), something classic, modern etc ANY help would be much appreciated, cheers!!!

There are 5 major areas where you can find nice stores selling saris:
Connaught Place inner circle, esp near Barakhamba Road
Lajpat Nagar Market, and South Extension nearby
Karol Bagh
Chandni Chowk (but a very crowded area; so avoid).

There's this Emporium (or whatever) near Connaught square (west? southwest?), difficult to avoid if you ask an auto driver for a place to buy (insert anything). Overpriced for sure, but the stuff is OK. You'll find a shalwar kamiz set at five times the Paharganj price but ten times the quality. They probably have saris as well, but I just can't remember the exact name or location.

The budget is fine for some of the good sarees.
Here are some picks:
1. Chandni Chowk for value for money and range. if one can handle Chandni Chowk.
2. South extention market: Nalli for silk, Vichitra for modern designs on Silk, and some more shops.
3. Lajpat nagar market
4. Ansal plaza has 1-2 shops dealing with good sarees.
5. You can also look at state emporiums on Baba Kharak Singh road, CP and cottage industries on janpath.

Thanks for the advice people, l know my aunty went to Karol Bagh and found something for Rs14,000, a cream/white sari with silver stitched in, l think they call it 'zari'?

My sister is after something very fashionable, not the sort of saris you see people wear everyday but for weddings/asian events that she goes too, shes abit of a diva you could say! And likes to stand out from the crowd, l think she would be willing to pay upto Rs25,000 for one sari if she thought it was worth it.

I have heard of Ritu Kumar but don't know where her nearest outlet is too south delhi, also has anyone heard of 'the crescent'??? I think its a mall near qutub minar area???

then she should shop in the Emporiums and pay probably double for what she gets, shame because Chandi Chowk is a grat day out and the shopping is great

Hopefully l'll be able to persuade her to check it out because l haven't been shopping round there myself yet! I have been twice but the last time there was some protest going on re popes comments and l got caught up right in the thick of it! Which markets around Chandni chowk or purani dilli are worth checking out??

Don't bother with Chandni Chowk at all. Its a dump.

Your aunt will enjoy shopping at the boutiques in Greater Kailash Part 1 M Block Market, South Extension Market, Ansal's Plaza ; all in the south of Delhi.

sanjay is right... you wont find what you are looking for in chadni chowk if you are thinking of RITU KUMAR

you can look into the karol bagh shops but if your sister is a real diva and can afford it why not ritu kumar

the cresent mall is where a new place for designer stores in delhi... its in lado sarai (near kutub minar)... ritu kumar has a shop there.

Has the Crescent Mall been effected by the sealing drive? I know there where some designer stores around the qutab minar area that have been shut down recently. Also, Sqauare One Mall, Saket, do you know where this place is? Is it worth checking out? Have been around Hauz Khas aswell, was abit rushed not sure if there are any fashionable saree shops in that area? Thanks again for the advice guys!
