Defence Colony market was until a few years ago known for its coffee shops, restaurants and neighbourhood grocery stores. A few exclusive boutiques for Indo Western attire were all that were found in this rather quiet market. Welcome to the Defence Colony of today.

Designer Wear Shops in Defence Colony Market

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.
