Rolling in the state's capital where your favorite celebs reside is a pride in itself. Silent streets with chaotic tourists all 365 days a year is something you wouldn't find elsewhere but Mumbai!

You'll find the latest fashion and imported fabric from your favourite brand in bulk quantity with a dropped down price which starts with as low as Rs.300!!! Personally, I prefer to buy beautiful, unique shirts, long dresses and trousers which you won't find anywhere else. Plus If you have the bargaining power,you rule the market with your lowest budget.
