Where to shop in Ahmedabad?

20 Nov

I’ve gotten queries lately regarding shopping in Ahmedabad, and I struck gold with these 2 articles that appeared in my newsfeed this very week!

The first one,

“Insider’s Guide: Shopping in Ahmedabad”

is from the Condé Nast Traveller website. From big fashion designers (Shyamal & Bhumika) to unique boutiques, the list is pretty extensive. It also covers stores selling jewellery & saris, and even has a list for your home decor needs! Best thing about it? The prices! Going by the starting rates mentioned in the article, you’ll find what you need without breaking your bank.

Here are a few names that popped:

  • Studio Virtues – “one of the city’s hottest addresses for wedding and festive wear”
  • Digvijay Singh (ethnic menswear) – “sherwanis, achkans, jodhpurs and kurtas”
  • Purvi Doshi
  • Asopalav – “saris…salwar kameezes, ghagras and chaniya cholis”
  • Deepkala Silk Heritage

If you’ve visited any of these stores, do leave a comment below sharing your experience! You know we love hearing reviews from real brides & real shoppers!

The second article,

Wedding Shopping Destination: Ahmedabad

is from The Wedding Co’s blog. This one is more generic because it doesn’t name specific shops. But it does tell you which markets to shop from, and what each is famous for –

  • CG Road for handwoven silk patola saris
  • Teen Darwaza market for antique jewellery
  • Dhal Garwad for the most reasonable rates
  • Law Garden market for bandhani saris

Once again, if you’ve visited any of these markets, do share your experience in the comments below!

Which places do you recommend for bridal shopping in Ahmedabad?

    Hey.. here’s a slighlty long list of places you should visit if you’re shopping in ahmedabad.
    I did a lot of my trousseau shopping from ahmedabad, especially sarees (from Deepkala Silk Heritage).
    Deepkala Silk Heritage
    Virtues
    Shyamal & Bhumika
    Ritu Kumar
    Anita Dongre
    DSBT
    Fuzzy Duck
    Deval
    Fuel
    Elan
    Bandhej
    Nautanky
    Avakasa
    Studio Moghra
    Ekaya
    Aparajita
    Varn
    Shibori
    Asopalav
    Nalli’s
    Utsav
    Kasab
    Roopkala
    Aishwaria

    Also, I would suggest to stay away from the old walled city unless you have a local person with you. Those markets tend to get very chaotic and it’s easy to get duped sometimes (especially in case of jewellery shopping).

    Regards, Purvi.
