I had to hire a dress/ costume for my sons school play and I have
been to places I haven't seen in last 30 years.
3 places around chennai(aka Mylapore, RA Puram and Royapettah)
1. Shanthi tailors - in mylapore mada veethi in a thin lane opposite
ambika appalam. Recommended for bharatha natyam style
(These guys have a website and you can get the phone there)
2. Manohar dresses - a nameless nondescript professional hire shop.
They hire for plays etc and won't be interested in small fry like
school plays. They don't stock childrens sizes. Take the right turn
after sanskrit college in mylapore (adjacent to a petrol bunk. If you
are coming from royapettah, it is the left after naidu hall and arya
3. Kalaivani dresses - best pic for childrens costumes. Chithrakulam
is the tank adjacent to kapaliswar temple tank. Go around the small
tank and you can't miss it (see pic)(its just after an aavin booth)
