Designer Shweta Kapur has come a long way since starting her label in 2012. Shweta Kapur started out as a graduate from the prestigious London College of Fashion in 2011, after which she trained under some of the biggest names in both Indian fashion, like Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla and Nitin Bal Chauhan, as well as international fashion brands like Burberry London and VPL. Growing up, Shweta Kapur was heavily inspired by MTV and dreamed of becoming a VJ. It is during this time that she discovered the importance of fashion and decided to pursue the line.
Shweta Kapur maintains that one of her most cherished memories is when she displayed her work at the Lakme Fashion Week AW’14 show in the GenNext section, which is where a lot of people took notice of her brand for the first time. Some of her fashion idols include Kate Moss, the character Dean Moriarty, Nicolas Ghesquière and Phillip Lim. Shweta Kapoor designer wear is known for its sporty luxe aesthetic. The designer is also a preliminary member of the FDCI (Fashion Design Council of India.), and has showcased at Amazon Fashion Week many times. The designer has appeared in many magazines listing her as one of the biggest designers to watch out for. However, she maintains that she prefers to spend all her free time drinking copious amounts of coffee and spending time in her studio.
