      yeah I so agree. The low range designer joras still have a lot of kaam but I havent seen high end boutique joras so I cant really compare. I'm just surprised at the cost because I thought you would save a significant amount of money by going to a boutique

      Ok, digging done on request and here is what I have been posting for ages about Karachi:

      * For good karigars try Kehkashan and Gulf. Both are pretty huge areas laden with tailors sitting there with there piles of bridal magazines, copying designs from every known designer in Pakistan. Almost everyone is good there. Make sure that you explain each and everything to them.

      * I don't remember the name but there is a shop in the inner lanes of Gulf that has some lovely Karma and Maria B. designs that were originally Rs. 1,00,000 plus and the karigar quoted Rs. 20,000 plus. The work was really fine but they don't bargain.

      * Kehkashan market, is across the road from Uzma shopping center in Clifton. Not exactly opposite Gulf but a bit ahead. Go to a shop named 'Designers' at Kehkashan as they are well-known for their stuff. The quality of work there is really good and closest to the originals we see every day. Remember, the prices are a bit steep, not ridiculous like the originals but affordable for those for have a starting range of Rs.8,000 - Rs.12,000. That is indeed a 'Designer Copy Dream place.'

      * You can also order formals from PLK, Tariq Road. I gave them my own fabric and they did the kaam. Again the quality of the work was really fine and I was happy with the result. They have loads of samples and you have to keep looking at the outfits to sort out the kaam you like. They also provides matching shoes and pouches/bags alongwith their bridals. I didn't ask whether they do that with their formals. You can also show them your design and they will make it as it is. BTW, their formals start from Rs. 10,000. Negotiate and bargain all you can. Ask for Farhan if you want to order.

      * A shop called NOOR zari centre on 1st floor Rabi centre Tariq road has very good work. Show the owner your designs and he'll make it for you with or without your fabric. His max price was around Rs. 20,000. I gave him my own fabric so each outfit cost me around Rs. 4,000. He does amazing sarees too. I showed him a sari that someone bought for Rs. 26,000 and he told me that he could replicate it for Rs. 7,000. I am thinking about ordering a few of my own.

      The good thing about this one is that the owner takes care of everyting himself from dress material, colour, kaam everything At Gulf you have to be really standing on the kaarigar's head so that he doesn't ruin your expensive material.

      * Jabeens at Tariq Road, Shakeel's at Saima Center, Makkah Cloth house at Rabi Center and Bridal creations at Dolmen Mall Tariq Road are equally good. They mostly have made to order stuff but also have unstitched formal suits that you'll love.

      * Also, visit 'Mohsins' at Saima Center, Tariq Road for formal outfits. Haven't ordered from Mohsin but have seen their work. It is awesome! The outfits had fab kaam on them and they were priced from Rs. 10,000 and onwards for formals. I loved an outfit that was priced at Rs. 18,000 and he said that if I provide my fabric he'll do the same kaam in co-ordinating colours for Rs. 9,000. Still on the expensive side but I really liked the finishing and sparkle of the outfits. They have ready-to-wear outfits and made-to-order ones, too.

      * I also know a home-based designer who can make any copies. Her name is 'Fatima Aunty' and her contact # is 021-6348210.

      * Many of the talented GS designers are based in Karachi, so you can have a look at their collection, too esp. SairaJi and Cyma.

      * Check out the shops at Gulf for silver gold plated jewellery. The ones I checked out had the nicest collection esp. 'Zevar' and 'Gehna'. There are other, too. I think you can get smallish sets for Rs. 10,000 and pendant sets for Rs. 5000-7000. For bigger sets, they can charge you anywhere from Rs. 25-50,000. I really recommend 'Zevar'.

      Lengha/Gharara is a big no no according to my mom but I'm hoping that with the wide legged trousers in style now I can somewhat get away with the look of one

      I realllllllllly love these outfits by Nomi Ansari and wanted to know if she had a boutique in Lahore by any chance? And if she could do it so the bottom was the wide-legged trouser instead of skirt and make them at least 3/4 sleeves? All my khalas and cousins are in Lahore so either way they will be doing the shopping for me. Also, anybody know the prices of these outfits? Or how much her designs usually cost?


      hello hinnah786 im in the exact situation...cant decide where to get my dress from. Can anyone suggest a boutique/shop which sells nice stuff? or a designer who isnt too expensive? How is rhim jhim?

      salam everyone!
      this is my first reply to a thread,as i recently signed up!

      first of all,u cant imagine how helpful all these wedding shoppping threads have been!everytime i googled smething,a GUPSHUP thread wud be there and i cant put in to words how useful the tips have been! thankyou!

      i have my wedding coming up in march 2010 inshallah..and i was really confused abt where to gte the brdal gharara made from,and finally opted for PLK,as it was highly recommdned by many frnds and so many ppl here on gupshup! so i have FINALLY even placed the order for a gharara there!phewww!!what a load off my chest!
      i just wanted to ask one thing,though its a bit LATE for it
      9cause it really dyed n all) :S :S...but..the cloth materail that they use at PLK,how good is it? i mean they showed the the materail and i liked it..its jamawar for gharara and shirt and chiffon for dupatta..i was just wondering,how reliable is their cloth?
      i just thot buying the lcoth myself and then giving it wud be such a hassle! and i think mostly ppl let the bridal ppl use their own cloth...right? ..

      any in put on this wud ba appreciated!

      Congratulations on your wedding, drfato!

      PLK's cloth quality is good. They use the same material that they show when the customer is choosing the outfit. People do bring in their own fabric, too but I think it is a great hassle if you have no idea about how many meters to buy for a particular outfit. PLK is a very reliable source for great designs that are customizable.

      Where are you shopping for the formal outfits?

      I recieved my wedding gharara and a light sharara from Jabeen's finally. Just 9 days late The sharara is beautiful, perfect kaam and perfect fitting. I got it for 25000. My gharara fits good as well but I realize I ordered the shirt a couple inches too long I guess it can't be altered now. and the kaam is heavy and the layers keep getting stuck to each other. The kora/dabka is coming loose in a very few places. But everyone says thats normal for such a heavy gharara..

      Oh, congratulations on receiving the outfits! You can finally breathe easy now.

      Do't worry about the length, it'll be okay with the trend going on nowadays. The price s great, too. The sticking of layers and the loose kora/dabka is normal for a heavy outfit. You can't help that. The kaam on the sleeves sometimes gets stuck to the sides of shirt and the threads snag there.

      Yeah definitely breathing easier
      Yeah the sleeves were getting stuck too. It's so hard to take a heavy kaam wali shirt off! Anyway..

      Now I just have makeup to buy. The other stuff left will be taken care of by my parents iA. Alhamdullillah we didn't have to arrange any jehez.

      Go to Naheed Supermarket if you need to buy makeup in Karachi.

      What about the shoes? Did you get them?
