Fashion Street

Fashion Street is a place frequented by the fashion conscious and the trendy. Situated on Mahatma Gandhi Road in Mumbai, this is the favorite haunt for the college-goers. A huddle of small shops and make-shift pavilions line up a 3 km stretch along the road. But this is not the place to visit in case a person is looking for ethnic wear, since this place caters only to the seekers of modern outfits.

Fashion Street boasts of almost all the latest trendy wears. These clothes can be purchased at a dirt-cheap price, which greatly depends on the bargaining skills of the prospective buyer. Most of the shops here are manned by the immigrant community from North India. Very adept in the art of selling, they are very versatile in taking a customer for a ride with their talks peppered by fashion lexicons.

Most of the cloths sold here are the product of small-scale factories located in the slum areas like Dharavi. Of course there are authentic foreign products, but these are the clothes rejected by importers owing to minor defects. However the overall quality of the wares is good and the prices here are among the cheapest in the world.
