Though March is the month when it’s officially raining unstitched lawn, the demand for ready-to-wear kameezes stands unmoved despite the competition. After all, when those last minute invites come in, you don’t have the time to run to the tailor to get the 3-piece lawn suits you’ve been collecting. Life has taught us never to rely on the promises of mastersaab anyway. Hence, picking up some prêt off the racks is always a simpler solution to mid-week fashion requirements.
