In order to use their space to promote creativity and productsthat are a result of an out-of-the-box imagination, The Bombay Store has introduced Launchpad. The platform will give young designers and new art, products, paintings and other merchandise an opportunity to reach consumers through the store. So, if you make paintings, home décor, furnishing, artifacts, fashion accessories, designer stationery, kitchen and tableware or have a great collection of funky knick-knacks, you can submit your work under this initiative.
“The Bombay Store has nurtured some big brands in the past too. We have always appreciated good talent and hence have always welcomed new designers/ brands. But this time we thought of converting this into an initiative and replicate our past success for new and upcoming designers/ brands/ artists,” says Asim Dalal, MD, The Bombay Store.
Through Launchpad, the store is inviting entries from across India, and will shortlist the best. The selected ones will get the opportunity to showcase and sell their merchandise at their flagship store located at PM Road, Fort. All one has to do is send a maximum of 10 product pictures along with a one-page write up about your brand/collection at firstname.lastname@example.org. The initiative is an ongoing process, so there’s no last day for submission. But as they say, the sooner, the better.
Forty Red Bangles were the first…
Forty Red Bangles is the first brand to be selected by the Bombay Store under their new initiative, Launchpad. The Forty Red Bangles label, founded in 2011 by Ramona Saboo represents a marriage of sustainability and design that celebrates everyday life in extraordinary India.
