And, no one knows Bangalore better than fashion guru Prasad Bidappa.

While Delhi and Mumbai became the centres for the biggest designers for both traditional and red carpet wear, Bangalore became big for prêt à porter or ready-to-wear garments. I’d put Seema Malhotra right on top in the city for the individual looks that she offers. When it comes to budget, I’d suggest people look at Ritu Kumar, as you can find a lot of options, right from affordable to high-end. I also like stores like Tamanna, Nalli and Mogra for bridal wear.” He adds that while Bangalore may not score big when it comes to North Indian bridal wear, he absolutely recommends brides to come down to the city to check out the large selection of jewellery designs the city has to offer.
