Dilliwalas and shopping is as fitting as muska pao. They just go together. Now while shopping in Delhi comes in all forms and shapes, you will still always need someone to count on, someone that will go to the ends of the Earth to dress you up the way you want. That’s when boutiques come in. 

Be it last minute alterations to a full-blown lehenga that you pinned at 1 AM, and now want to wear for your bhabhi’s sister’s best friend’s wedding. Boutique aunties will have your back. 

But, finding gem-like boutiques, cannot be easy, so to make the search less disappointing, here are boutiques across Delhi NCR you can check out for, from everything from summer dresses, to chiffon blouses, to cholis.

Vaasas

Our home baker and dog lover friend from Dwarka, Ria, pointed us to Vaasas. It’s run by Uma and Siddharth, both of who come from the fashion industry. The boutique, located in Dwarka, now has two store-cum-shops in the area. They have readymade Indian wear, including anarkalis, lehengas and shararas to pick up off the shelves, apart from the option of getting something completely customised. They stock up on fabrics to mix and match, and do everyday kurtas as well. See some of their designs on their Facebook page.

What They Do Well: Ethnic wear and evening gowns

Prices: Their readymade suits start at INR 7,000, while getting a basic one stitched with a pant/palazzo will be INR 750. A blouse (with lining) is INR about 1,000. 

Malini's Creations

Malini Ahuja, based in GK is someone we love for the sheer variety of outfits she’s executed to perfection. From those pristine, white wedding gowns to pastel-coloured anarkalis, she’s been working with a gifted army of printers, karigars and tailors for almost 25 years. Walk into her space and you’ll be greeted with a rack loaded with Indian wear (lehengas, anarkalis, shararas and the like) and another one with casual and semi-casual (think everyday kurtas and semi-stitched suits). You can pick one of these readymade outfits, or get something completely customised.

Fun Fact: Novelist and founder of The Burlap People, Karuna Ezara Parikh wore one of Malini’s stunning custom-made blouses.

What They Do Well: Her blouses fit like a glove, her evening gowns are on-point and her white-on-white Lucknowi suits are a hit

Prices: INR 5K for blouses, INR 18K onwards for stitched shararas and anarkalis and lehngas for INR 28,000 and upwards

Aman's Creations

Peplum tops with dhoti pants, capes, benarasi dresses, camouflage-print blouses, and cocktail dresses - Aman really thinks out of the box. For more than 15 years, she’s been successfully running her business from Jaipuria Plaza, Noida with a fairly new brand opened up in Sector 50. She stocks up on fabrics like cotton, silks, khadi and more as well. What sets her apart is that she doesn't believe in replicating designs at all. She is, however, great at recreating things that justify creative briefs to the tee.

What They Do Well: Occasion-wear, Indo-Western fusion outfits. 

Prices: INR 900 for a non-padded, beginner-level blouse and evening gowns starting at INR 5k

Admire

A colleague has been going to Admire, located in Rajouri Garden, a salon-cum-boutique for years now and says she’s seen it grow from a tiny set-up to a big studio over the years. The biggest testimony to their design and fit is that she says she’s never had to go back for a retrial. They stock up on an Indian ready-made range of suits, lehengas and more but our source tells us that they make copycat outfits really well. If you want something completely customised (embellished gowns included), they’ll do that for you as well. 

Added Advantage: They have a salon for a complete day of shopping and indulgence.

What They Do Well: Ethnic outfits are really their forte, but they’re also comfy with no-fuss evening gowns

Prices: The readymade suits start at INR 3k but if you’re getting one stitched for yourself, it could be anything above INR 1,400

Naaz

Located in Pitampura, Naaz is all about amalgamating style with luxury. From Pakistani suits, embroidered lehengas, to shararas, to even celebrity-worn dupes (Like Alia Bhatt’s gold and ivory wedding lehenga. Naaz promises to do just about anything when it comes to making you put your best fashion foot forward. Their Instagram is packed with client diaries, so you know that they deliver what you ask for. Though they have a website, I’d suggest you either visit them or DM them on Instagram. (Added bonus is that they’re super responsive!) 

What They Do Well: Replicate designs and ethnic and bridal wear.

Price: The range starts at INR 2,500 onwards.
