What you see -
Lakshita is a relatively new but popular store in Kamla Nagar in Delhi, and deals in women’s apparel. The main attraction of the brand is that you can get large size western clothes easily at their store. The shop is located on the main circle (referred to as ‘bada gol chakkar’) of the market and is hard to miss. The mannequins displayed outside the showroom give you a hint of what’s available inside. The ground floor has tops and shirts while the mezzanine floor stocks bottoms and jeans.
What you get - Lakshita
is essentially known to stock Indo-western clothes for women of all age groups. From small size clothes for petite women and girls to large 4XL size shirts and kurtas, they have them all.
The clothes are displayed in racks as per sizes. Casual kurtas and formal shirts
in cotton, voile and linen are available here. The collection also includes kurtis
with embroidery, patchwork, sequins, bead work, plain shirts in bright and pastel colors, long tunics that can be worn over leggings and more. The casual tops
are priced at approximately Rs. 500 onwards while the formal ones start from around Rs. 1,000. Salwars are also available here that could be mixed and matched with your kurtis.
Another floor displays formal trousers
, stylish leggings
(Rs. 450), capri pants, long skirts for a casual outing and smart jeans (Rs. 600-995). These are available in waist sizes up to 42 inches. Business suits for women are also available at the store and these are priced quite reasonably.
Our verdict -
The store has gained a lot of popularity with women of all age groups and sizes. The competitive price, availability of large sizes, good quality of fabric and the perfect fitting are some of the unique selling points of the brand. The staff here is helpful and assists when required. Parking at Kamla Nagar is a problem in spite of paid roadside parking and therefore avoid taking your car. Avoid visiting the market during the weekends as it is quite crowded.
