p>My daughter is turning 1 in December and I wanted to get her a customised dress made, since it’s a theme party. Any ideas on tailors/ designers who specialise in baby clothes. I live in Bandra, Mumbai. Thanks.
Most baby/kids stores in Bandra have readymade theme outfits but I figure you don’t want to go that route. If you do however, then check at Design Touch, Hill Road (Ph: 26455827). You could also check with the folks at Sona, Hill Road opposite St. Peter’s Church (Ph:26420356). They are party organizers and will probably direct you to tailors or designers. PartyHunterz, Shop no. 1, Shabistan CHS, Dr. Ambedkar Rd, Bandra has a great range of theme outfits. Am not entirely sure but they may also do custom designs.
With regard to designers who will create outfits you could try:
Zeenath Khan 9967543683 / firstname.lastname@example.org (read our review here)
Darryl Loyola 9819939708
Rohini and Sabina 9821155135 / 9821902095
If you want to attempt a DIY costume and
need a tailor, head to good old J. Bob Tailor situated opposite the back gate of St. Stanislaus School on the no-entry street off Bazar Road. He has an army of experienced tailors and is very used to strange tailoring requests (been there, done that !)
When getting a special outfit made, please remember to give the tailor or designer as much lead time as you can and don’t leave the dead line for a few days before the big day. I would recommend you start immediately as the closer you get to the hectic tailoring/ wedding/December season, the less interested tailors and designers are to entertain one-off projects.
We’d love to hear from you about your theme party and which outfit creation option worked for you. Best of luck
and have a super time on the 1st birthday.
