“Empress’s” new clothes – II

March 27th, 2010 No comments

Now if we focus on the unstitched types of dresses, who tops the list?

I guess its based on the priority for the shopper.Should it be the price, the quality or the trendy look in the cloth?Sometimes, for foreign shoppers, the place of the shopping is also important.

Staying still in Tariq Road and Bahadurabad, as in ‘Empress’s new clothes- I’, lets start with the biggest shop on the block – literally, Portia Fabrics. A shop renovated in 2001, its just goes forward without stopping.Huge variety in all prices, colors, quality and taste. Difficult to enter and leave without purchasing something.

There is a discount section, where stuff is for 11% less. Ho, how can I forget the free drink they serve?

A very new shop is Threads and Motifs. It maybe new, but its probably leading the market. Its copies are available in Rabi Center and the likes.But copy being a copy, is no where close to the original stuff.

Buy them and don’t be disappointed.

And now for my personal favorite, Junaid Jamshad. Their prices are better, their colors are better, atleast that’s what I think. More over, they create for men women and child. Visit their factory outlet and chose a dress at yoru liking and at a good price.

“Empress’s” new clothes – I

If wishes were horses, beggars would ride…

I truly believe in this one!  And in case of wishes, sky’s the limit.Which female wouldn’t love to have a wardrobe full of new, trendy , up to date fashionable clothes.  With the tailor charging a suit stitching equivalent to a primary class fees, its a better idea to just buy stitched suits from some of the trendy shops.

Keeping in mind, that the most popular shopping area of Karachi is Tariq Road, lets start from the boutiques present in this zone.

A very old , yet up to date shop ,Exclusive , is a must visit for all the right reasons. Be it a wedding ceremony, a simple party or a flashy saree that you are looking for, you will find one to your need. The shop underwent a makeover some 2 years back and the stuff available was on sale. A very attractive offer for those who were able to visit it then.

Then as the name suggests, Cotton Collection has cotton stuff, embroidered, block print, regular printed or mix and matching suits. Their variety is average, with similar stuff available elsewhere. No great options here.

Next is Shades, which has good, different, and an eye catching variety. They have office wearing cotton, evening dresses and wedding wear and the colors used are awesome. Their best baat is that they will give you a discount, which makes it all the more attractive
