Heritage meets haute couture in an upscale shopping and dining precinct adjacent to the Qutub Minar. In the historic Delhi district of Mehrauli, India’s leading designers display traditional wear in glittering, palatial stores. Century-old haveli mansions are now home to labels such as Manish Malhotra and Sabyasachi, where shopping amidst the velvet curtains, vintage carpets and Tanjore paintings is an experience in and of itself. Designer labels include Falguni & Shane Peacock, Anita Dongre and Tarun Tahiliani, among others, and stores are spread across the One Style Mile, Qutub Garden and Ambawatta One complexes. The area is a one-stop destination for high-on-the-bling-quotient Indian wedding wear: shimmering lehenga skirts, flowy anarkali kurtas and menswear too. Expect extravagant Indian designs with price tags to match all throughout.
