Miss Universe Ximena Navarrette and Sanjana Jon (fashion designer) were visiting India to promote and celebrate the ‘Girl Child’ as part of the ‘Miss Universe Sanjana Jon Tour 2011′. While here, they were spotted at the Hyatt in Dehi to launch Bata’s new Marie Claire Footwear line. It’s a collection of affordable footwear for the summer, but I must admit a bit passe in terms of fashion. The gladiator trend has died down, and although it still looks sexy today, it would have been nice to see Bata make summer brogues or something a bit more on trend. Must say though it’s a big step to re-position the brand image, something Bata has been trying to do for a couple of years now. It really should, as internationally their shoes are pretty amazing, and definitely not as cheap as it is here in India.
