Bershka was created in 1998 as a new brand of the Spanish group Inditex, with a new retail format that responds to the demands of a sector of young people who are interested in and highly aware of new trends. Bershka presents itself as a reference point for fashion targeting this increasingly demanding public and, in just 2 years, has consolidated its brand image in 100 shops.

Walking pass a Bershka store, I always assumed it to be an expensive brand and something I couldn't afford. But my curiosity go the better of me, and I popped into one of their outlets recently. I was surprised to find the clothes there affordable. The apparels are unique in the sense that they do not carry a somewhat mainstream style but instead possesses their own - chic and sophisticated. It's a wonder why Bershka is not as well-known as other clothing brands.

I believe they could have been as popular as Topshop or Forever 21 if they promote more to attract the crowd. With a change of heart, I will without a doubt be dropping by their stores every now and then!

I am quite picky when it comes to fashion, and I have no qualms when it comes to Bershka. A not so famous fashion brand that runs away from generic clothing, I like Bershka for their more or less elongated wear, mainly for men. Most tees and tanks are a normal fit but at Bershka, the tanks and tees are rather elongated, and it is meant to be worn that way. It serves as something different, and for the style it carries, I feel that the price is rather reasonable. Partners with Zara, there is no wonder why this clothing brand is so stylish and unique. Sadly though, Singaporeans tend to disregard this shop as its only outlet is in Ion Orchard.

Bershka is one of my favorite places to shop at because of the great quality of their clothes, and the reasonable price of most items in the shop. I love how I can get party dresses for $80 or less at Bershka, and look like I bought them from Herve Leger.

However, some of of the staff from the Ion outlet can be quite rude, dampening my shopping mood. They were quite cranky when I asked them for another size and took a long time to get back to me.

Also, there was once during the sale period when the cashier refused to reserve a dress for me for an hour because I had to meet my family for dinner (and that was the only piece left). However, I was lucky that the dress was still available on the sales floor when I went back after dinner. When I proceeded to the cashier to pay it, the very same cashier refused to greet me or even look at me, and just put out her hand to me, signalling me to pass the dress to her. Also, after she packed the dress in a plastic bag, she simply threw it on the table and served the next customer. This was an extremely bad experience and definitely the worst I ever had during all my years of shopping.

Other than the disgusting service, they actually do have cheap and nice clothes.

Another one of my favorite stores in town. You can find the latest trend available on the racks with a touch of uniqueness that you can’t find outside. I love the casual outfits I can find over there as the quality of the clothes is definitely a match to their pricings. However as the prices are slightly steeper, I only shop there during GSS season, where the prices are marked down. I’ve recently gotten a bag at a steal of $39.90 when it’s original price was around $50 So do keep a lookout for sales and grab your items fast.

Bershka is one of the best options if you are looking for fun and stylish clothes. I believe that its affiliation with Zara has made it even more popular, but each brand has its own distinct style. Bershka's fashion is vibrant, colourful and youth-oriented, with a hint of punk. I particularly like their accessories -- they never fail to brighten up any outfit!

However, I'm rather turned off by the loud music played in the store. I have never thought that the background music could actually affect my shopping experience -- Bershka is the first. I always make a quick browse around the store and if nothing catches my eye, I will leave as soon as possible because the music really bothers me a lot. Ironically, I feel that the loud music may be one of the things that draws youngsters to the store...to each his own I guess!

I must admit, I have a weakness for shopping I’m sure most girls do. However, more importantly is my love for a good deal. Bershka does provide a good range of basics at about 20 to the fancier items at about 50, but even better when it goes on sale. I bought a basic top in a striking shade of fuchsia as well as several accessories when they were on sale. It does provide a good shopping experience, nothing fantastic though, with the slightly dim lighting and music playing in the background to hype up the atmosphere. I do suppose that the fact that Bershka, Stradivarius, Pull and Bear all seem to be owned by the same parent company does seem to create certain striking similarities between them. Such as the style, the vibe, and the pricing is pretty similar across all three stores which creates a similar shopping experience.

Bershka is a place of happiness- especially for those looking for some edgy pieces in their wardrobes. Their clothes are never boring or dull, expect interesting and grudgy tops, blazers and denims. I bought a $200 pair of denim, ankle length boots, and I must say that it is indeed worth its price. It is durable, comfortable and stylish- I wore it for an entire day of photoshooting and my feet did not feel sore or uncomfortable. Their denim jeans are also of good quality- necessary for those who are looking for such wardrobe basics. Perfect for those who want to go fashion forward.

Just went to a Bershka store less than 12 hours ago. The clothes at Bershka are trendy and nice-fitting. I saw a couple of flowery tops that looked pleasing to the eyes and looked like it will fit well. The cutting was very obvious. The sewing looked good as well! I did not buy it as I have too many unworn tops at home! Went to the shoe section, it was small but I got my eyes set on a pair of dark pink suede heels. They have a variety of heels available. Patent to matte to suede. I tried it on but the heel was too high for me. Not the heel's fault because it was absolutely gorgeous but I can't stand wearing heels for long, not to mention super high ones so I placed it back on the shelf reluctantly.

Service was excellent. The sales assistants were not being pushy and even greeted us with a welcome line that says "Welcome to Bershka!". Lighting at Bershka is on the dim side though. Yellow lighting. Not the best for shopping. I would prefer white lights like those at Zara. Overall, great price and quality coupled with trendy designs. Worth a look!

I have always been attracted to the apparels and shoes at Bershka, as the fashion style is rather unique and trendy. The cutting of the clothes does not really fit me though, especially those fitting ones, thus I am more likely to getting the off-shoulder and baggy shirts from Bershka. The material used to make the clothing varies, and I will be more likely to get the cotton ones opposed to the flimsy, see-through types although they would be good for layering and wearing with leggings.

I do get some of their footwear as well, but found that the cutting of the slippers are a little weird as the slim cutting of the slippers wound up with me stepping on the straps. Their range of footwear is a little pricy though and does not have comfy feet padding on the base.

Despite the price, there is still often a crowd at Bershka. There seems to be a lack of service personnel as the apparels and shoes are often strewn in different places despite the service staff constant packing and assisting the customers in finding the designs and sizes of the products. It can get frustrating and I have given up trying to get a sales assistant to help me, and just leave the shop.

Walking in Ion, and seeing this shop for the first time when it first opened, I was indeed very curious as to the type of clothing that the shop would sell. The shop had a unique name that I up till today have no idea how to pronounce it properly without being laughed at, and has a very interesting exterior design that is fitted with black and pink.

The first impression would be that the shop is rather punk-rock, with its mannequins on display wearing very trendy clothing. However I was quite impressed that the shop was actually more toned-down than I had expected it to be. There were various designs that had the 'studs' and 'leather' but besides that there are other fairly nice designs that are actually quite reasonably priced and pleasant. Hidden beyond the girls section of the shop would be what I would call the surprise. The t-shirt designs for the guys shirts are very special and attractive, with bright colours but yet not too loud. Furthermore, the jeans are also fairly fitting with considerably good quality for the cheap price that it is going for.

I would prefer if the shop had opted for a little more bright outlook, however I am sure this punk-rock style goes fine too as it attracts the younger crowd. Despite its mysterious appearance, I was rather pleased that there was actually enough lighting in the shop so that the clothing can be judged fairly.
