Fashion, Food, and Music at the 4th Trademark Market, Bandung


The 4th Trademark Market Bandung has just finished yesterday. It’s too bad that unfortunately I could not go there on the first day because I had stuff to do, but I finally got the chance to go there last Saturday with my friends. That day was my first time going to Trans Studio Mall and it was super crowded. I saw some fashionable guy and girls holding paperbags with local brand names printed on them and I knew I came to the right place. I’ve already felt the atmosphere of Trademark Market on the third floor of the mall, everyone was walking in and out of this huge circus-designed entrance with a big “TRADEMARK” on it, so I joined them.

I was greeted by a lot of small booths spreading out over the hall and they offered locally made clothing with shopaholic swarming around them. Many people came and visit every booth to shop, eat, and enjoy the event. I really like the atmosphere of this kind of event, so I walked around and looked at each and every booth to find fashion items I want to buy.

It was really fun, especially for girls because there are lots and lots of booths that sold so many cute fashion items: tops, bottoms, footwear, and accessories. I even found colorful necklaces for only Rp 25.000 each! Trademark Market also offer a variety of jeans, shoes, t-shirts, and handbags for guys. My favourite booths will be Aniaki, Koola Stuffa, and Travis. They offered a lot of cute shoes and tops, while Travis sold variety of  premium jeans.

You don’t need to worry if you get tired after strolling around the Trademark Market because there are also booths that provide snacks, heavy meals, and a selection of beverages and desserts. The price are also affordable. You can see for yourself how crowded Trademark Market was.

Overall, despite the crowd and the heat, the atmosphere of Trademark Market was very enjoyable. Friends bumped into each other, the tenants interacted with their customers, while some people enjoyed their snack and listened to live music from the main stage. I think Trademark Market has reached its goal, to help promote local brands, ranging from old labels to the new ones, so it was a great job after all. I’ll see you at the next Trademark Market, then! <3

Trademark Market ke 4 baru saja selesai hari Minggu kemarin. Sayang sekali saya tidak bisa datang pada hari pertama karena harus mengerjakan beberapa hal, tetapi akhirnya saya sempat juga datang ke sana pada hari Sabtu. Itu pertama kalinya saya pergi ke Trans Studio Mall Bandung dan hari itu benar-benar ramai sekali. Saya melihat banyak cowok cewek fashionable membawa kantong belanjaan dengan nama-nama brand lokal tertulis di atasnya dan itu membuat saya yakin kalau saya datang ke tempat yang tepat. Saya mulai merasakan atmosfir dari Trademark Market di lantai 3 Trans Studio Mall, banyak orang keluar masuk ke dalam pagar besar dengan desain bertemakan sirkus dan juga tulisan “TRADEMARK” di atasnya.

Di dalam, banyak sekali stan-stan kecil yang tersebar di hall lantai 3 dan mereka menawarkan pakaian buatan asli Indonesia. Banyak shopaholic mendatangi setiap stan untuk belanja, makan, dan menikmati acara Trademark Market. Saya sendiri memang suka sekali acara seperti ini, jadi saya pun ikut berputar dan melihat setiap stan untuk mencari fashion item yang saya mau beli.

Trademark Market memang  acara yang menyenangkan sekali, khususnya untuk para cewek karena stan-stan di sana menjual banyak sekali pakaian, celana, sepatu, dan aksesori yang lucu. Saya bahkan menemukan kalung warna-warni yang harganya cuma Rp 25.000. Trademark Market juga menawarkan banyak jenis celana jeans, sepatu, kaos, dan tas buat para cowok. Tiga stan favorit saya adalah  AniakiKoola Stuffa, dan Travis. Mereka menjual banyak sekali sepatu dan baju yang keren, Travis menjual berbagai jenis celana jeans.

Kamu juga nggak perlu khawatir kalau sudah mulai kecapean setelah berputar mengelilingi semua stan yang ada, karena Trademark Market juga punya banyak stan yang menjual snack, makanan besar, juga berbagai pilihan minuman dan dessert. Harganya pun affordable banget. Gambar di bawah menunjukkan betapa ramainya Trademark Market ke 4 kemarin.

Secara keseluruhan, meskipun udara jadi sedikit panas karena penuh orang berdesakan, suasana Trademark Market enjoyable banget. Para penjual berinteraksi dengan pembeli, teman-teman bertemu satu sama lain, dan beberapa orang menikmati makanan mereka sambil mendengarkan musik live dari panggung. Saya rasa Trademark Market sudah berhasil mencapai tujuan mereka, untuk membantu mempromosikan merk lokal, mulai dari yang lama sampai yang masih baru, so it was a great job after all.

See you at the next Trademark Market, guys!

    I think the very first Trademark is still the best Trademark that ever held. The design and pattern was still so original. Dari taun ke taun kayanya produknya makin mirip-mirip, sebenernya bukannya ga bagus produk-produknya sih. But, it feels like they have lost their originality.

    This web is very helpful, tho. Likess! xx

      Unfortunately I didnt go to the first Trademark Market 🙁
      But I think you are right. This happened with Brighspot Market too. Since there are a lot of local brands now popping everywhere so somehow it’s true that it feels like they have lost their originality. But still, they’ve done a really great job to help promote local brands <3 and thankyou Kiw for your compliment. Come again and spread the news <3
