Delhi is totes amazing in more ways than one. Saying that it is the one city where you can find something from every part of the country won't be wrong. And everyone who's living in Delhi, or has lived here at some point of time knows that we are spoilt for choice for almost everything - be it eating out, shopping or other fun activities. Now let's focus on the shopping part for a bit. If you are getting married in the near future, then you can always check out the amazing local markets for your trousseau. Since we've already given you a list of all the amazing places to visit in Chandni Chowk and Shahpur Jat, here's the Lajpat Nagar haul. Everything from outfits, fabrics, accessories and much more, all in one place.
Shakuntlam needs no introduction. It's a trusted name when it comes to ethnic wear and you will find something for all your shaadi wear needs - lehengas, simple and heavy sarees and suits among many other things. The best part about this franchise is that they know what the modern Indian women wants and they always stay updated with all the new fashion trends.

Nargis Fashion is quite a known name in Lajpat Nagar and even though it's tucked in a tiny lane of the ever-crowded central market, you can ask the local shopkeepers to guide you to it.

A tiny shop located in one of the by-lanes of the central market, this place is a haven for laces, borders and latkans of all kinds, though they specialize in borders. Phulkari, kundan, zari, cutwork, Swarovski-studded - you name it, they have it. Want to pep up one of your old outfits for your shaadi functions? Do pay a visit to this amazing shop.
Where: E-24, Central Market, Lajpat Nagar - II
Though Lajpat Nagar is famous for its fabric shops, KC Creations is hands down our favourite. From cotton to silk to raw silk to satin to net, they have every kind of fabric in every colour you can imagine.
Where: 4, Pushpa Central Market, Lajpat Nagar - II
There are around three to four stalls located bang opposite KFC in the central market. They have similar designs in terms of cut, colours and embellishments and since their designs are similar, they are quite competitive when it comes to pricing. So, bargaining is a key rule here! If you are someone who loves and prefers juttis and kohlapuris over heel, then do pay these stalls a visit.
Where: Opposite KFC, Central Market, Lajpat Nagar - II
P.S. You will also find a lot of accessories and imitation jewellery stores here. So Lajpat Nagar is actually a one-stop shop! And oh, you will be spoilt for choice with all the scrumptious eating options. But, it's mostly closed on Monday, so plan your visit accordingly.
It's okay, go ahead with your shopping first and you can come to thank us later! *wink*
