The Bling Stores is a Mumbai based online store Founded by Moonmun Kanoi that provides chic style fashion accessories, apparels, and sunglasses collection.
This brand started due to Moonmun’s eternal love for the bling, which made her move from a small town in Assam to Mumbai (the city of dreams).

The Bling Stores team strives to provide trendy and quality products to people at extremely affordable prices.

What inspired you to build the above product/ service?
Honestly, I have been always attracted to anything and everything that had a little bling in it. And, the fact that I belong to a small town in Assam where trends came in last didn’t stop my undying love for fashion. Since I was a kid I used to make little accessories and put them in a small jewelry box that I owned.
I have a zeal in me to follow trends and add a touch of my style to accessories took me to formulating this brand.
What was the most challenging part of your journey till now?
Coming from a small town in Assam all the way to Mumbai and establishing a base here was immensely challenging.
I always felt from the beginning that the essence of fashion lies in this city of dreams and in order to make a mark of my own I will have to start from here.
I always believed in the saying, ‘where there is a will there is a way’ initially it was tough but gradually everything fell into place and by God’s grace my brand is running at a good pace now.
