This Legendary Tailoring Shop On Comm Street Is Bae For Lehengas And Gowns On A Budget
What Makes It Awesome
From middle-aged women, on the way to their kitty, to young girls looking for someone to make their first lehenga – we bumped into every kind of client at LB Prakash. Started over 15 years ago, the busy tailoring unit that spans several shops just off Ebrahim Sahib Street is now spearheaded by the affable Amrutha P, the second-generation owner. LB Prakash is perfect for brides on a budget or, actually, anyone who is looking for a custom-made ethnic outfit that doesn’t break the bank. Everyday fashionistas come by for blouses and salwar suits. Walk into the store and you’ll see an entire display of blouses ranging from simple cottons to ornate bridal ones. You can choose to embellish your blouse with the elaborate stonework or even delicate thread work. Prices for the blouses start at INR 700 and can go up to around INR 3k for the decked up versions. If you love picking up fabric for your kurtas and getting them customised, Amruta or one of the tailors will be happy to help you out with trendy designs that begin at about INR 750.
LB Prakash has garnered much of its impeccable reputation thanks to its bridal creations. If you are sporting a gown for your big day, then, stop by here. They’ll give you a design and even recommend the shops you can buy your fabric from. And you can pick up a gown starting from just INR 2,500 from here (that’s an unheard of price anywhere else in the city). Similarly, stitching charges for lehengas start at INR 1,650.
What Could Be Better
If your design is simple enough and they have tailors on-hand, they even deliver finished blouses and kurtas in two hours!
