Tashi opens its first store at 352 Linking Road Bandra with a six foot tall red stiletto storefront display. Leo Burnett Mumbai has been tasked to handle the communications strategy. 

The campaign themed ‘For the love of shoes’, includes a detailed below-the-line plan combined with in-store, radio, outdoor and print executions.

Rajeev Sharma, national planning director at the agency, said, “Shoes have the potential to come up on the agenda and indeed to be loved simply because they are such a source of joy, power, sex appeal and sheer aesthetic pleasure and not to forget comfort.”

“We wanted to tease people with their love for shoes in a quirky manner. We leveraged the much underrated outdoor medium to the hilt and worked on rekindling people's love for shoes, specially the male specie,” added KV Sridhar, national CD at Leo Burnett.

The project is overseen by Deepak Deshpande, vice president of retail at Tata International.
