Trousseau Destination – Hauz Khas Village #4: Ole Couture

hauz khas village Ole Couture Trousseau destination

This is the final post in the series on designer stores in Hauz Khas Village. You can find parts 1 to 3 here, here and here.

Yet another high-end store. Ole Couture has a lot of unique pieces – in both Indian and western wear. I always find lots of pretty tops and dresses here, but never buy them because they are so expensive. They have lehengas as well, heavy and light ones. The designer will also sit down with you to design it if you please.

I found a very nice sangeet lehenga here, very “fluffy”. You know the ones that make you feel like a princess? J But we weren’t too sure what to pair it with, so we didn’t take it. And now I’m glad we didn’t. Although it’s fluffly, it doesn’t have that kind of ghera and fall that will make it twirl endlessly while you spin around on the sangeet. I want one of those. Like the one in this video below (see 1:22 to 1:30) –

Where can I find one like THIS???

Back to the store – they have party footwear as well for brides, but they’re best avoided as I didn’t find any comfortable. The bottomline on this store is – it’s got some pretty nice and different kind of Indian as well as Western wear for your trousseau needs. Do check it out, but keep in mind that it’s a pricey place.

Update: I went to a wedding recently (July, 2013) and saw a lot of the guests in Ole Couture pieces! If you can afford it, definitely buy a few pieces for your trousseau from here.

  2. I loved the collection at this store!! Their outfits were on an expensive side but their pieces are extremely hatke designs and not the regular run of the mill stuff that you would find at south ex market or other bridal wear stores. I did find some reasonably priced pieces which were really elegant and classy! It was a good break from all the usual bridal lehengas in net with chamki work that i am seeing in every other bridal wear store! .
