Mr. Alexis Nasard, CEO, Bata Group who shared the new manifesto, said, “One of the most important things in life about yourself, is self-confidence. Self-confidence and self-esteem allow us to live fuller lives and get much bigger opportunities. Because people with confidence and self-esteem, they dare more! And when you dare more, you get more. You get more opportunities personally, socially and professionally. That is where, we at Bata, stand. We try and give our consumers, particularly women, the opportunity to have the little bit that they can control, to feel good about themselves. This is our little contribution to society, a little contribution towards women feeling great about themselves and being comfortable in their skins. I’m proud and delighted to share the Bata Brand Manifesto – Me. And comfortable with it.”
Mr. Rajeev Gopalakrishnan, President, Bata Emerging Markets, South Asia said, “Celebrating 123 years of iconic status, we are thrilled to share the new outlook of Brand Bata, which is a reflection of the modern Indian woman. The latest Indian TVC campaign of Bata – ‘Me. And comfortable with it.’ highlights the brand’s admiration for women in a very special way. Being one of the most recognised brands in India, we feel that it is important for us to have a point of view. Our research and insight reveals that the modern Indian women are comfortable with her choices, her emotions, her feminity and with challenging gender roles, in essence ‘comfortable in her own style & shoes’. The Bata fashion show today featured some of our most exciting collections, all painstakingly researched, designed and crafted to define comfort and style. We welcome India, to step into Bata and step out in style.”
