One of your guilty plea­sures

A Shopa­holic in all ways that says it all…true con­fes­sions of a Shopa­holic.

What do you think is the key to pro­fes­sional suc­cess for women in In­dia?

Hard work, Per­se­ver­ance, De­ter­mi­na­tion, Strength and Pa­tience is what I feel is the key to suc­cess for women in In­dia. Also ut­most fam­ily sup­port is re­ally im­por­tant. With­out fam­ily sup­port, noth­ing is achiev­able es­pe­cially in our coun­try.

My ad­vise to you:

If u can’t fly, then run. If u can’t run, then walk. If u can’t walk, then crawl. But what­ever you do, you have to keep mov­ing for­ward. Fol­low your dreams; you will ul­ti­mately reach your goal.

What would be the theme for your next show?

Its Sum­mer Sym­phony - Ready To Wear Run­way of Style. That’s be­ing hosted at Ho­tel Lodi on July 12th, 2017. A col­or­ful and lux­u­ri­ous shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence of a hand­pick se­lec­tion of only 35 Be­spoke De­sign­ers from Fash­ion, Life­style, Jew­ellery, Ac­ces­sories, Re­sort Wear, Chil­dren’s wear, Health/well­ness, Beauty/skin care, Patis­serie, Sta­tionery, Gifts and much more.

There­after, Fash­ion Cap­sule’s Di­wali Fes­tive Edi­tion Ex­hi­bi­tion on Septem­ber 23rd 2017 at Hy­att Re­gency, New Delhi.

What spe­cial of­fers would you cre­ate this year?

It would be an amal­ga­ma­tion of best se­lec­tion of de­sign­ers, pro­mo­tions, mar­ket­ing, qual­ity ser­vice and to top it all, po­ten­tial shop­pers & buy­ers al­ways. We are com­mit­ted to of­fer­ing busi­ness value to your brand, and look for­ward to a long-term, mu­tu­ally ben­e­fi­cial re­la­tion­ships.

In­ter­na­tional par­tic­i­pa­tion and event at­ten­dance ex­pected to grow at the next edi­tion?

Fash­ion Cap­sule just had its first in­ter­na­tional Ex­hi­bi­tion in Lon­don, UK on 19th & 20th May where es­tab­lished, emerg­ing & renowned de­sign­ers from In­dia and Lon­don show­cased their col­lec­tion all un­der one roof. We can proudly state that most of the vis­i­tors left with a shop­ping bag full.

What could be the most im­por­tant Rea­sons to At­tend Fash­ion Cap­sule?

We care­fully hand­pick our de­sign­ers best suit­ing the mar­ket, who show­case their most re­cent col­lec­tions as per sea­son and trends. At Fash­ion Cap­sule u will find good mix of es­tab­lished and emerg­ing de­sign­ers from var­i­ous fields.

Look­ing back, can you tell us about your great­est high­lights so far?

My de­ter­mi­na­tion has paid good div­i­dends. Fash­ion cap­sule shines like a bright star. A lot of it is be­cause of what I be­lieve in, I feel proud and equally hum­bled to share that FASH­ION CAP­SULE won an award for the ‘Fash­ion En­tre­pre­neur 2016’ fe­lic­i­tated by es­teemed Sha­bana Azmi at an award func­tion hosted by the Can­cer Aware­ness Foun­da­tion. Also sec­ond time in a row for, ‘The Best Fash­ion and Life­style Ex­hi­bi­tion’ award at the Rav­ish­ing Wed­ding Awards 2015 which was fe­lic­i­tated by Sush­mita Sen. An an­other ex­tremely proud mo­ment was when URS, Asia One Mag­a­zine, hon­ored Fash­ion Cap­sule and Mal­lika Jain as Worlds Great­est Brands & Lead­ers 2016-17, Cho­sen and re­viewed by Price­wa­ter­house­coop­ers PL. All these awards stand tes­ti­mony to my hard-work and com­mit­ment to Fash­ion Cap­sule’s ex­hibitors and shop­pers alike. It has also been a priv­i­lege to be a guest speaker at var­i­ous Fash­ion in­sti­tutes where I have given my fash­ion ad­vice to young bud­ding fash­ion stu­dents.a 40 page COF­FEE TA­BLE BOOK by THNK MKT MAG­A­ZINE, a lead­ing pub­lish­ing house, wrote a book on me, my Life, achieve­ments, growth and suc­cess.my Ex­hi­bi­tions have also been vis­ited and ap­pre­ci­ated by Bol­ly­wood Veteran Star Sridevi and Eve­lyn Sharma and im­por­tant Politi­cians & In­dus­tri­al­ists.

Ad­vice would you give young women who want to fol­low a sim­i­lar path as you?

“Go con­fi­dently in the di­rec­tion of your dreams, Live the life you have imag­ined.” - Henry David Thoreau. It’s re­ally im­por­tant to talk to your­self and look at your­self in the mir­ror and love that you are. And it’s im­por­tant to re­mem­ber that we all have magic in­side us.also I would like to add, I would give to women walk­ing the path of em­pow­er­ment would be to be­lieve that you can achieve all your dreams and goals. Suc­cess starts in your mind. If you can’t see your­self achiev­ing a lot, then it can never hap­pen. You are your big­gest cheer­leader, so start with say­ing some­thing pos­i­tive about you and your day. So go ahead ladies, rise n Shine!!

Which Key char­ac­ter­is­tics do you see a fe­male leader hav­ing?

I see some­one who is strong, has lead­er­ship qual­i­ties and is a giver. I’ve in­ter­acted with a few in­flu­en­tial women in the past, and one thing that they all have in com­mon is that they are very gen­er­ous; gen­er­ous with their money, time and tal­ents, which causes them to have true and ful­fill­ing suc­cess. Apart from hav­ing am­bi­tion, de­ter­mi­na­tion n ex­cel­lent com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills, pas­sion, and self ex­pres­sion. A fe­male leader needs to have a VOICE… A women with voice is by def­i­ni­tion is a strong women, but the search to find that voice can be re­mark­ably dif­fi­cult.

Your plans for the fu­ture? What’s next?

Lots planed for the fu­ture ahead in terms of new projects, ex­pan­sions, di­ver­si­fi­ca­tion etc., Let there be scope for sus­pense for both your read­ers and my fol­low­ers. Cheers!
