Accessories editors swear by this shop for faux-gold jewelry at sub-continental prices. Metal bangles are $6 a dozen, rope necklaces start at $25, and a huge fringe choker with matching earrings sells for as low as $55. Bright-red carpeting sets off the vivid, jewel-toned fabrics draped off every surface. Baskets on the floor overflow with embellished leather slippers in men’s, women’s and children’s sizes, and you can search for your fit while reclining on a sumptuous red-and-gold settee. Racks of easy-fitting unisex tunics (kurtas) in embroidered cotton are a chic, summery bargain (2 for $50). Luxurious beaded and hand-painted evening shawls, pashminas, and cashmiris take up almost one entire side of the store, near a selection of jangly belly-dancing costumes and bolts of lush fabric. Follow the sound of the whirring sewing machine to the back, where you can see some of the in-house seamstresses’ finished products: home accessories such as pillow cases, curtains, and bedspreads; custom men’s formalwear, including Nehru jackets and suits; and stunning sarees. NKNYC recently has expanded its services into event planning and will orchestrate anything from mendhi parties to a full-blown Indian wedding.
