That’s why I love this Parisian sneakers brand that brought to our country the French lifestyle, which is anchored not on perfection but on simplicity and elegance. And because Bensimon puts great value on our individuality, it hosted a DIY workshop, for the second year, yesterday, March 26!
I had so much fun designing my own sneakers. But favorite design was made by my close friend JC Buendia. It was very simple yet elegant and classic. Cherry blossoms bloomed from his white canvas sneakers – and just in time for the sakura season in Japan too! I wish I had his talent. Good thing the Bensimon DIY is more about showing your personality rather than artistic prowess!
The workshop goes with the tagline, ‘Dream-it-yourself, do-it-yourself.’ I believe that there is a designer in every individual. We don’t all get the chance to design something for other people but we like being able to design and customize for ourselves. With Bensimon, I was able to do a sneaker design that before I thought would only be just a dream. And I really love the fact that now I have a pair I could totally call my own! You know what the best thing is? You could do that too!
For every purchase of Bensimon sneakers from March 24 to April 25, you will be entitled to a free DIY workshop session. Make sure to get your pair from any of the following participating stores – CommonThread (Greenbelt and Power Plant), Rustan's (Gateway, Makati, Alabang Town Center and Shangrila), SM Aura and SM Makati – for you to get a workshop invite. This promo will culminate with two workshops simultaneously happening on April 25th at Common Thread Greenbelt and Power Plant Mall.
Don’t miss your chance to personalize your sneakers! Grab a Bensimon pair now! Allons-y!
