Head To Erandwane's Boutiques For An Ethnic Shopping Spree
We love Erandwane! The area is serene and has some amazing cafes and boutiques. Nestled among trees are some amazing shopping stores for western, Indian or designer wear for women. When in the neighbourhood, shop till you drop at these boutiques.
Well-known among fashionistas of Pune, Gawaksh is a classic when it comes to good-quality stitching and affordable fashion. We love their kurtis, suits and saree collection that have been inspired by different regions of India. Their eclectic style with traditional patterns is what we are in awe of. This boutique is dupatta heaven, and they also organises dupatta festivals.
Double Seat Designs
Double Seat Designs is a boutique that has a fabric section called Fabricana. Whether it is a flowing dress in pastel colours or casual kurtis for work, the outfits are comfortable and neatly tailored. We went gaga over their summer dresses, which started at INR 899. They also have an accessory and footwear section.
Leggings, kurtas, suits and all things ethnic, Celebrating Fabric Boutique has it all. The collection is unique, well-tailored and affordable.

They are also into customisation for those who do not prefer readymade outfits.
