Hey guys! It’s been long since I’ve done a blog post. I’ve been super busy but trust me, there’s a lot more fun stuff coming your way.
So on Saturday, I attended the launch of one of Goa’s oldest and most famous Apparel stores ‘Bharne Creations’.
After styling Generations, Bharne has now re-branded and changed their brand name to BFL which stands for Bharne Fashion and Lifestyle to appeal to the youth. They’ve redesigned their store at The Caculo Mall and given it fresh, modern interiors. They’ve also put up another Bharne Store on the ground floor of the same mall with matching interiors.
They now house some of India’s most popular fashion brands such as Nush by Anushka Sharma, Vero Moda, Jack and Jones, Being Human by Salman Khan and so many more!!
The collection I saw at the launch party was incredible! I’m the kind who would mostly shop online or shop when I go on trips to Mumbai, Bangalore or abroad since Goa had such few options when it came to shopping. But now, I can just pick up my keys and drive it to BFL to get my fashion fix which is super convenient and awesome!
They’ve also started a new concept called BLM which stands for Bharne Live Mannequin/Manneking. Yes, that’s right. That’s some clever word play. So this is a platform for Goa’s aspiring models to get famous and win some exciting prizes!
At the launch party, they had 6 live mannequins. These were actual models who were posing as mannequins. All of them, extremely well dressed in Bharne’s outfits. They look so poised and so much like real fashion Mannequins.
They had them pose like mannequins behind the display glass of the store for a bit, while people decided who their favourite male and female model was. They then handed out stickers to the audience and everyone was meant to vote for their choice of Mannequin or Manneking by putting their sticker on the glass in front of the mannequins.
It was a really fun polling experience and a first of its kind in India, I’m told. So if any of you readers are aspiring models, get ready to be on the look out for more contests like these. I’m told that they will be held once a month, regularly and the prizes to be won will blow your minds away!
I had the best time at the launch! Here are a few more shots of me.
