Commercial Street ,Bangalore:  If it was not the lehenga for my friend's marriage,this part of Bangalore would have been unexplored by me.Getting a lehenga done in 3 days flat,thats the magic of commercial street.To a newcomer,it must be difficult to understand which place stores what.The best way to understand commercial street is to go along with a local friend who might help you with the details on where to buy good belts,funky jewellery,dress material etc.etc.Or if you have time,you can explore the place on your own,the local shopkeepers might help you to discover what you are after.Its foolish to go there and not bargain,1/3rd of the normal price is what everyone should aim at.Here are the list of places in commercial street where you can find fabrics,decor and all things interesting.Lets explore

  2. Hi,

    Useful stuff indeed! I am looking at buying dress material for a north Indian style lehenga. Any good shops you could think of?

    I went to Aanchal. It had a lovely collection but seemed to be quite exhorbitantly priced.

  3. The prices in commercial street are exhorbitant. Could you tell me a gud place to buy cotton dress material and fabric for stitching western wear. Thank u.
