There’s something exciting for all the creative junkies in this fast changing world of Indian fashion. Supposing you design or make wall art, home décor, furnishing, artefacts, fashion accessories, designer stationery, fancy tableware or have a great collection of funky knick-knacks, and you want people to buy them, then ‘The Bombay Store’ has just the right opportunity for you. Sharing its passion for art and creativity, the lifestyle store has begun an initiative called ‘Launchpad’ – to showcase the work of young and brave entrepreneurs who are dabbling in designs, art and creative merchandise.
Instrumental in the launch of popular fashion and lifestyle brands like Tantra, Provogue, The Elephant Company and more, The Bombay Store is highly recommended by the Travelers’ guide “Lonely Planet” and rated as one of the best shopping destination in Mumbai by Trip Advisor. The ‘Launchpad’ might spring you to success; so all you aspiring designers who want to leave a mark, just log on to the beautifully designed Facebook app by creative digital agency ‘Digital Latte‘, at the Bombay store Facebook page to register yourself.
Get your portfolio ready first. Create a maximum of 10 pictures of your creations, a one page write-up of your brand and zip it to not more than 20 MB. Then click ‘Register’ and fill up your personal details along with uploading the zip folder, before you submit. That’s it, you can cross your fingers now!
These entries would be shortlisted and the best ones would make it to the outlet in the heart of South Mumbai for a period of 10 days. And, if you are the chosen one by the store, you could also become a permanent member with the Bombay Store!
I must say Launchpad is an excellent initiative that could kickstart careers. Building the registration form on Facebook and using both the social media platforms it is active on – Facebook and Twitter, The Bombay Store has certainly managed to appeal to the young, aspiring, creative crowds.
