One of the ideas behind the blog is to discover, collaborate and showcase new designers and start-ups in fashion. So we were quite happy to read about LauchPad by Bombay Store; an initiative to showcase the work of young and undaunted entrepreneurs of today who are dabbling in designs, art and creative merchandise.
Entries were invited from design students and start up designers who have the pulse of the Indian consumers and are making & bending fashion and changing the face of Indian Fashion! The following brands made the cut and will get the opportunity to showcase and sell their merchandise at Bombay Store flagship outlet in Fort, South Mumbai, for a span of 10 days each.
