    Default Readymade churidar ?

    Hi,

    I will be coming to Chennai in Feb for just 1 or 2 days and am looking forward to buy some nice readymade churidars in new patterns.

    When I was in Bangalore (2 yrs back) I used to shop for readymade churidars at Shoppers stop and Westside and I kind of liked their stuff.

    Please recommend some nice places not too far from Anna Salai to shop for readymade dresses.

    Check Karishma in nungambakkam

    Fab India - G.N chetty road

    Few shops inside spencer plaza

    All the above 3 are very close to anna salai/mount road

    Thanks Cindhuja and Rajalakshmi.

    Cindhuja,

    I love the FabIndia stuff. They are simple and elegant.
    I am looking for dresses that are a bit more grand, for festival / occasion wear.

    I have read some good reviews readymade dresses in Nalli, Pothys etc too. How far are these from Anna Salai?

    Anna salai to Nalli or Pothys is about roughly 60 -100 Rs in Auto (depends from where in Anna Salai).

    Try Pothy or RMKV...Go in morning hrs, rush will be manageable due to pongal season...dont even think in going evening hrs.. RMKV has less rush and prices are slightly up & collections are limited and good.

    RMKV, pothys, Nalli & Kumaran and close to each other...

    Nalli is good (both old and new, they are very close-by) but i dont think you would have enough options.

    Whereas in RMKV and pothys you have 'n' number of options...but sure the quality is good in hi-end stuffs alone..the cheaper ones not worth spending..fades off or shrinks in 2-3 washes.

    I would recommend SKC as Rajalakshmi said...

    Just one big stretch from annasalai take an auto in the early hours and have a pleasant shopping...

    Will get back with more updates

    1500 - 2000 you will get good sets..no doubt about it.

    I saw you posted about book store in another thread..if u plan to come Pothys in T.nagar...visit Natesan street...so many book stores are there in same street..it is walkable distance from Pothy's ..may be 5 -10 mins..follow under the flyover u will see natesan street parallel to ranganathan street... here is info for one good book store in that place
    Eswar Book Shop
    Archana Arcade,
    # 16, Natesan St.,
    T. Nagar, Chennai
    Ph. (+91 44) 2434 5902

    I suggest go to book store before going to Pothys as it is hard to carry all shopping stuff n walk there.

    Hope this info is useful
