If you’re one of the brides that knows, without question, that you’re getting a Sabyasachi lehnga—that’s AWESOME. That is a *huge* load off of your wedding planning plate, right there.
Me on the other hand? I literally had no idea about South Asian designers when I was engaged, picked a random shopping location (Surrey, right outside of Vancouver), and hoped for the best.
Knowing what designer you want to wear saves you so much time and wasted energy.
What doesn’t save time is having to plan a lengthy flight + trip to India to purchase from the designer you want.
Well, that’s not a problem for you brides of Sabyasachi, because you’ve got 3 places (lucky!) to do your Sabyasachi shopping stateside.
The Bollywood Closet US
The Bollywood Closet US is an official Sabyasachi retailer. So you can rest assured that you’re getting the real deal, for the actual (not gouged) price.
Browse a big collection of sarees, lehngas, menswear, and even accessories (helloooo, fancy tiger logo sling bag).
Get a sneak peek of what’s available from their website.
Sabyasachi flagship store
NYC, New York
Okay so this is kind of a tease (don’t hate me), because the NY flagship store isn’t slated to open until early 2022.
But you have to admit, the only thing cooler than shopping from an official US Sabyasachi retailer, is going to his flagship store in NYC!
No hard grand opening dates yet, but I’ll keep you posted via the Dulhan newsletter (so be sure to sign up!).
The Grand Trunk US
If you can’t wait until early 2022 (we’ll update you with more details when they reveal them), consider planning a Pleasanton, Cali trip to The Grand Trunk US.
Another official retailer of Sabyasachi since 2005, you can browse their enormous selection of Sabyasachi outfits on their website.
For in-person trips, appointments are required.
