I finally got to see the most talked about Fashion Street of Mumbai, this visit. Tucked cozily on the street side close to Churchgate in old Bombay, it’s a plethora of options to choose from.
As always, girls have more choices and better ones. However, most of the designs, be it for men or ladies, is much inspired by the blockbusters of Bollywood and Hollywood and tees with imprints of known rock bands. The cuts and designs are so vivid and sometimes strange, I was lost either appreciating or disliking them.
I also heard that I went in time to get the best prices due to clearance sales as Navaratri and Diwali will see a surge of new fashion.
Some are fixed price shops and some are bargain outlets. However, even the fixed price shops will have some bargain friendly goods.
And talking about the Mumbai shopkeepers, I am happy to see so much customer friendliness. When he quotes a price and you start to walk away, he says “aap Batao kitna doge, bolna aapka hak hai” (translating to “you tell me the price you would wish to offer, quoting your price is your right”. Now that’s not just as a smart line, they really mean it, making it a proud experience for the consumer. Something for our entrepreneurs to learn from.
Variety, politeness, customer friendliness and smart talk mixed in a comfortable proportion is what you would get to see there.
All in all a great experience.
