Honestly, I think you may be surprised at the quality of the ready-to-wear pieces in India, especially in Mumbai. Although they are ‘ready-to-wear’ they are often unique pieces that you can alter and add to as much as you want. It might also be tough to have a designer make a piece for you to bring back in just a few weeks, and it’s always a good idea to have the final product in hand before heading back to the States. I found my reception saris at Queens on Marine Drive in Mumbai. I was really impressed with the quality of their pieces, crystalwork, etc. They have amazingly beautiful lehngas too, and a very talented tailor.

I heard the prices in india, esp in the bigger name stores are not cheap anymore.
I had a friend who shopped at benzer, her out fit is very beautiful, but they screwed up the fitting… what good is a dress without the fitting… scares me,,, thats why i am looking for a customer made .. i think i will look at both options though when i go… i am also going to look around in Nj before i go… maybe i will find something here itself and save myself the aggravation.
