Where to buy silk salwar kameez in Delhi

I'm going to Delhi in November for a couple of days and after for a friend's wedding in Kolkata. I would like to buy a nice silk salwar kameez to use at the wedding (maybe a couple of them since the wedding has so many different ceremonies).

I read that it would be better to buy it in Delhi than in Kolkata becaouse of quality, design and variety. But I have no idea where. I would appreciate if someone could suggest a store where I could find it.

Thank you so much!

Nallis Silk at Connaught Place has high quality silk material.

Some stores in Lajpat Nagar too sell silks...

There must be many more, Dilli Billi can shed more light !

But I'll say that Kolkata will also have good silk. Afterall Dhaka Silk was wold famous and Murshidabad too was a big silk production centre. May be Brave1 can suggest something !

Thanks for the tips!

I'll check which are the stores closer to the Lalit hotel, where I'm staying. I may nove have a lot of time to visit many stores, unfortunately.

I looked online and it seems that the the first store you mentioned sells very traditional sarees(I have to say that they very pretty, even though it's not what I'm looking for). I'm lookinh for salwar kameez that would be more contemporary/trendy. Maybe designer ones. Something lime this:

Do you think I can find these in those stores?

I saw your link. You can find stuff like that (and suitable for a wedding) for between Rs 3000 to Rs 5000.

Some ideas:

Select City Walk (big mall)

Khan Market - there are some small boutiques, try Sprucee next to Grovers

Meena Bazaar at Southex Market

Ansal Plaza - Meena Bazaar or Shoppers Stop

There are tons of places in Delhi where you shop for silk salwar kameezes. Look at this post for ideas:

tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g304551-i3482-k252…

If you are pressed on time let me know the location of your hotel and I will suggest a market/shop closer to you. Do you have a specific budget in mind. Khan market and Select city can be quite steep.

KY Calcutta may have the best of Dhakai silk but who can deny that the salwar kameez trend setters in the country are the 'Dilli ki kudiyan'! Buy them here I say!

Yes Dilli_Billi you are right !

Delhi Kudis are trend setters in Salwar Kameez sphere...

But now a days I see most of the girls are in western Dresses ( I must buy some shares in a western wear company)...

Dilli Billi: I am definitely pressured on time and I would appreciate the name of a store close to the Lalit hotel where I'm staying.

Nalli Silks, in P Block near Madras Hotel is a good place to get such Salwar Kameez in Connaught Place.

Fabindia in inner circle of Connaught Place is another option for handmade silk.
