Latest trend: Babli showing a Lacha suit at her outlet in Johor Baru.
JOHOR BARU: With Deepavali just around the corner, shoppers are rushing to get their hands on the latest Lacha suits, said to be the trend of the year here.
Today’s Fashion outlet owner, who wanted to be known only as Babli, said many customers requested for the suit, which is a long netted blouse paired with a long flare skirt.
“Out of the 200 suits that arrived from Bombay, India a month ago, only three suits of different colours and designs are left,” she said at her outlet in Plaza Seni here.
She said the reasonable pricing and exclusive look of the Lacha suit had attracted many customers.
“The lacha is traditionally worn by brides in some parts of India and Pakistan, as it has a grand look with stones embedded on it,” she said, adding that the price of the suit could go up to thousands of ringgit depending on the design.
Babli said the cheaper suits ranged from RM500 to RM600, but due to demand and the upcoming Deepavali celebrations, she decided to sell the suits for about RM300.
“Customers responded positively to the bright coloured suits and were delighted with the reasonable price.
“Many are opting for a different style this year and sales for salwa kameez has dropped,” she said.
