DandiyaDon’t wish to spend a bomb on an outfit for a dandiya night, but at the same time would not want to look under-dressed? No problem, for now you can rent a costume for a garba with your pals! Many shops in the Capital are renting out lehenga cholis and dhoti kurtas this dandiya season.

Harsh Kumar Saini of Kaku Fancy Store, Jangpura, says, “Dandiya is catching up in a big way. While girls rent lehenga choli and angrakha, boys prefer dhoti, jackets, pagdi, etc.”

Vandana Tewari, a college student who got a dress as well as accessories on rent, says, “I thought the dress and accessories would be expensive, but I got it for just Rs 600! Doing dandiya with the right set of clothes gives you a high.” Shweta Nag, a working mother who got an angrakha for herself and a dhoti for her son, says, “Since I wanted my son to enjoy the festival the traditional way, I decided to get the clothes on rent.”

While the trend of renting costumes is picking up, many still invest in traditional wear to lap up memories of dandiya nights. A striking traditional outfit like a lehenga, we found out, starts at Rs 7,000. So what are you waiting for? Grab your garba costume right away and dance the night away with your loved ones!
