TIPS FOR SHOPPING IN LAJPAT NAGAR
Before you rent dresses and jewellery, remember the following:
The garments and jewelry are available on rent for 3 days
There is a Security deposit which is in proportion to the rent of the dress or jewellery
The garments are dry cleaned before and after they have been given out on rent – so they look clean and ironed.
There is a tailor (masterji) who can alter the dresses and the blouses. Typically, the lehenga (skirt) is not altered, because it has a stretchable waist band.
