so if you've ever wondered how mermaids are born...

It all started a year ago when I quit my job as a fashion designer in a trendy retail company. My husband and i decided to take some time off and traveled to India for six months. This was my second visit in India, so as a craft and textile lover - this is my Disneyland! i love walking around with my camera, wandering in markets, finding treasures (of any kind! fashion, accessories, food, vintage, home decor, musical Instruments, plants... you name it).
My most exciting finding was a little hidden shop that sells amazing shiny one of a kind clothes. As the raven that i am, i followed the sequins and glitters into the shop and started browsing, pulling out some insanely beautiful handmade pieces. It was PACKED with so many items, that i physically felt like i'm searching for a treasure, digging in an endless collection of colorful fabrics and shiny beads. When i asked the shop owner what kind of place is it (it looked like a huge costume warehouse) he told me that these are all vintage pieces from Bollywood productions, that were worn by actors and dancers. Long story short, i visited this place a few more times, and after many hours of digging, and many cups of chai, slowly and decisively collected this amazing collection of rare vintage pieces.
I'm truly in love with each and every piece i have chosen, and i know that every vintage hunter, every textile \ craft lover, every true fashionista, every diva at heart - will appreciate these items like i do.
This is why i called my shop Bombay Mermaid, this shop is for all the non- conformists that wants to SHINE, that look for uniqueness, and that understands in GLAM ... us mermaids <3
