    Ooh yes - I love the stole idea
    And kittennffc, I like about an hour from manchester and I'm going shopping there on thursday, but where's curry mile? :confused:

    Get on the road where the Uni is... its called Oxford Road... The curry mile is on that same road except a little further down... where the eye hospital is...

    Basically... Oxford Road, where the main uni campus is, is a road that connects Curry Mile to the city centre (where the arndale is etc) So if you're in the city centre where arndale is, you'll need to get to the opposite end of Oxford Road.

    Just do an image google search of the curry mile (its quite well known in the UK) and take a look at the pics, so then when you goto Manc you'll recognise it. The area its in is Wilmslow... just ask anybody round there and they'll point you to it

    OR do a route planner on the AA website

    Well I wasn't at school in the UK..just here for uni... I had it done back home (in Bahrain) where its alot cheaper than UK... it cost me about 120 pounds for tailoring including buying the material etc

    I don't know how much tailoring costs in the UK though but I heard quite pricey though I could be wrong!

    Soho road in Birmingham has a range of shops where you can get sari's, salwars and lenghas at all types of prices.

    If your looking for a dress with an indian twist to it, i reccommend a shop their called kirans who do really nice dresses.........they can be abit pricy but it depends on what your looking for............Silons also do a good selection as well as Amans........if thats any help?

    check out the asian shops down green street if you're near london. or even southall, bethnal green and whitechapel. i recently got a dress for my cousins wedding, but mines hot pink so looks very indian, but you can get similar things in...less brighter colours.

    I wore an Indian-fabric style dress to my ball last year:

    It was from Monsoon - maybe you could still find one?
