As Sophie Kinsella would say, 

“A shopaholic would have a coat in every color and lots of accessories.”

Channeling your inner Diva for that College Fest? Looking for comfortable biker shorts? Quirky sunglasses retailing a thousand bucks?

It’s time to get our shopping bags and comfortable shoes OUT! And where’s our next stop?



The capital city of India is surrounded by historical stories, awakened dreams, and magical possibilities. But we better not forget those mischievous lanes of a shopaholic’s dream come true. The most famous markets in Delhi have always been the talk of the town for affordable and trendy clothes.

Fashion should be accessible. With tons of statements being made every day, it gets difficult to keep up with all of them. Especially when you are a college student saving up. The budget can be tight. Getting clothes out of the mall every season does not really sound like a great idea either. Does that mean, you need to cut off from making statements? NO! 


Here’s to making fashion accessible to all.


The pandemic made us miss them even more. And to those who are still unaware of these gems, you might be missing out on a lot. But fret not! We are here to help you out of all the fashion dilemmas. And guess what, They are Pocket-Friendly.


We have curated a list of the 11 best markets in Delhi. Read on to find out more on what to get where and shine on your legacy.
