“We like to think of Prakash Collection as Delhi's version of New York's Mood Fabrics, the store Project Runway contestants shop at before a challenge. There's a spool of gold spiked lace in Delhi and you could trim a nightmare or a couture dress with it, depending on where your imagination takes you. Which is what we took plenty of as we stepped inside Prakash Collection, a decade old ribbon shop.”

“All you Dilliwaalas, whether born and bred, or just making it home for a while, are aware that Lajpat Nagar is South Delhi’s answer to all things fabric, trim and embellishment related. And if you weren’t aware, we’re clueing you in to this gem, with tips from a regular visitor. In this case, we mean Delhi-based designer Ridhi Mehra, who’s known for her custom-made couture. She uses a lot of traditional Indian material, as well as embroidery worked into ensembles for the contemporary woman, and swears by The Prakaash Collection.”

“The easy-to-navigate layout of the store let us walk around and spend hours touching and scrutinizing prints without tiring us out. We spotted a forlorn opal button with a wilted flower on the side, the kind Murakami's protagonist would wear on her dress. Vintage buttons embossed with seals reminded us of wartime promises and tiny metallic ones replicated different fruits.  With an equally vast collection of beads, tassles, zips, another outlet in Lajpat Nagar and the promise to customise a lace if you bring a picture, Prakash collection, is, if nothing else, cute as a button.”
