Drop By Rani Bagh Main Market For Great Wedding Wear, Casuals, & Juttis
Ever since I was an annoying twerp of a teenager who constantly badgered her mother to take her shopping (because I clearly never had enough clothes), I remember going to Rani Bagh to shop for clothes that would stand the test of peer pressure and social acceptance. Anyway, the Rani Bagh market is really one of the best markets located in North Delhi; it's like what the Rajouri Garden main market and Sarojini, are to West Delhi and South Delhi folks respectively.
Hence, we've jotted down a list of the best stores to shop from when you're in the area.
Raja Ram Sons
This store is an ethnic wear and wedding wear store. It has a lot of heavy lehengas, suits and ethnic gowns. We recommend this shop for its lehengas more than anything else. Expect super vibrant, occasion based ethnic wear here for about INR 4,000 and above.
Right across the street from Raja Ram Sons, this is another great store for occasion-based lehengas, ethnic gowns and more. We really liked that they have lehengas that are quite fancy and super affordable. Picture hot pink lehengas with golden borders for about INR 4,500. Their price range starts at INR 3-4K.
Guru Ji Impressions
This store has western wear that can be mostly worn to parties and special occasions. Guru Ji Impressions has strappy and shiny tops that took me back to the 90s with their glitzy-ness. Occasionally, you can also find mesh and net bodysuits here as well. This shop retails garments starting at INR 900 and above.
Desire (Men's wear)
This showroom is one of the most prominent men's wear showrooms the main market has. They have everything from three piece suits to sherwanis. That's just the ground floor, if you go up to the next floor, they have casual t-shirts and shirts for men. What we thought was cool was that they have those trendy chain, printed shirts as well! The top floor is full of wedding wear apparel. Their price range begins from INR 4, 000.
There are two shops with this name, but look for Shabad Originals, and you'll reach the location. Shabad Originals sells wonderful lehengas, suits and suit-lehenga sets primarily for celebratory and special occasions like weddings, engagements and the like. You can find pretty, pink tussar silks with gotta patti work and beautiful embroidery on it, or a nice lavender hued suit-sharara set with interesting zari work on it. Their price range starts at INR 5,000.
Anokha Saree is one of the largest showrooms in the Rani Bagh main market. They've got everything from occasion-based embellished ethnic gowns, to lehengas and suits. Anokha mostly stocks fancy garments and their price point begins from INR 4,500.
Bhai Ji Di Hatti
This is a little shop that is tucked away in a narrow street, so you may have to look for it a little.They only sell bottom wear. We loved that they have sharara bottoms in basic colours like blue, red, white and beige. Apart from this, they have palazzos, leggings and Chikankari palazzos in many different colours. This is where you can go if you're looking to match specific coloured kurtas with bottom wear. Their apparel is priced at INR 350 above.
This is another ethnic wear shop that retails pretty suit sets. They have everything from heavier lehengas to basic kurtas as well. They sell their products for about INR 4,000 and above.
