“I agree we shud not point fingers at individuals but it is also important for us not to cheat on our customers. Vimal, Prasanna & Ashish together have been cheating a lot of customers. They raise prices of products and sell to customers to meet budget. Sonam Kapoor had bought a clutch from the Delhi store for which the price was increased as the team was told that she would not get to know. They hve been doing this with a lot of their VVIP clients like Richard Madhok, Gaurav Khullar etc and it is sad as no luxury brand would do a thing like this. She would sell exotic leather in the store and tell the press that they are only press samples. She used to pick up store pieces from the Bangalore store and keep for herself. It is better not to have a management rather than have people like them who kill the brand.”
If anybody who is reading this can find out from Sonam how much she payed for the clutch she picked up from Salvatore Ferragamo at DLF Emporio in New Delhi, I will personally check if she was made to pay more and then take up the issue with Ferragamo bosses.
Also selling products made out of Exotic Leather is ILLEGAL and it needs to be verified upon.
Salvatore Ferragamo is facing some tough times in India. The new collection – ‘My Ferragamo did receive a tumultous reception at its launch, both in Delhi and Mumbai but the turn-outs at parties usually don’t translate in to sales. Ferragamo is closing down it’s Grand Hyatt store in Mumbai as the sales there don’t justify its existence.
Now comes another big decision from the House of Ferragamo. As per a highly reliable source, Prasanna Bhaskar’s stint as the Regional Director of Southeast Asia & India for Salvatore Ferragamo is coming to an end this December. The source also said that Ferragamo HQ is scouting for a dynamic person to head Ferragamo India and put the brand back on a growth mode.
