Here it comes again, one of Jakarta's most anticipated event. Brightspot Market is back with it;s lucky number eight edition to rock the urban fashion culture and lifestyle. Held at Gandaria City 3rd floor, Brightspot Market has more or less 140 brands (mostly local) coming together in one place.
Pot Meets Pop denim from Bandung, various ties, colourful Baggu Bag!, lots of loafers and oxfords from Seba Shoes)
we went there on the opening, Thursday June 7 at about 8pm (got the invites from Nylon Guys), and I was so excited to explore the hall. I found out that the place has a good layout, high ceiling, and decent aircon so it doesn't feel to cramped and is comfortable to walk around. If you are coming in the weekend, I suggest you to come early, as it usually gets crowder by night.
Repent monochromatic clothes, Cool menswear at Inksomnia - they have one of the best visual merchandising, and the uber cool leather shoes from Zevin)
Nearly all of the booths has creative set up, so it makes me want to approach the brand. I have heard most of the paritcipants as they joined the previous event, but I also found some new brands. it has womenswear, menswear, interior products, polaroids, books, and even kidswear! And of course there are a lot more interesting brands, what i captured here is just a glimpse! Don't forget to drop by the Goods Cafe booth to chill out after shopping and get some cupcakes plus their famous baileys milkshake.
Nikicio booth, one of my favourite local label.
ToiMoi adorable pillow and Geulis necklace- a modern twist on batik pattern)
So, if you are heading to the Brightspot or in case you are Brightspot first timer, read on the guide below:
1. Bring more CASH. So your transaction will be faster (and BNI cc for the lucky dip)
2. Wear comfortable clothes and of course shoes. Cause you will be roaming around and trying on the clothes.
3. Check your favourite brand's website first, because some brand allows you to order via website then pick it up at the event.
4. Don't get lost, see the market map here.
Well, overall I think it is one of best Brightspot Market set up so far, because the well curated space allows you to roam around comfortably. Well, the best think to know more is to visit it by
yourself. So what are you waiting for? It's open till June 10! give the local products some love :)
