Best Shops In Defence Colony Market

Shaw Brothers by MIFI and MUBI

Carpets and shawls, from Kashmir! The sight of such shops makes one wonder how the shop owners know exactly what we want in one place. Go armed with superlatives and adjectives. Splendid, exquisite, great, fabulous, magnificent… such are the products on display here that you will fall short of words anyway. The sheer variety, design and size of carpets is unimaginable. The silk in the silk carpets are passed on from one generation to another… and hence many creations here have antique value. Woollen carpets, silk carpets, hand-knotted carpets – the basement is warm and comfy in the company of these carpets! The staff never tire of explaining the intricacies of carpet-making, the art of hand-knotted shawls, crewel and chain stitch embroidery… interesting. Clamber up to the first floor for another visual treat. … a surfeit of shawls made of wool, cotton, silk and linen. The beauty and softness of the pashmina shawl is simply unparalleled… it strikes you with the same wonder each time you caress it. These shawls and stoles come in beautiful shades with heavenly embroidery. The pashmina stoles wrapped around the neck looks elegant and is most comfortable. Woollen jackets with exquisite Kashmiri embroidery look absolutely marvelous. For reviews of more such Delhi shop reviews, check out Shopkhoj!

It is a High Street, a luxury shopping destination with ‘brides to be’ flocking to newly opened designer stores. You do not have to go to MG Road and Emporio Mall for trousseau shopping anymore. With the ‘whos who’ of the designer world opening their stores in this market, the shopping experience is now completely different. Street visibility and greater footfalls have tempted the designers to open shops here. Nirav Modi has opened his first diamond retail showroom here and there is a Swarovski store as well. Kitsch by Priya and Charu Sachdev stocks international luxury brands by Victoria Beckham, Stella McCartney, Dolce & Gabbana ,Alexander McQueen and a few others. Moonriver is another interesting store that stocks porcelain, glass and other handicraft items from Europe.
