Priya Kapur wants to develop her brand as the trusted go-to destination for all fashion accessories

Living her dream in this glorious era is Priya Kapur, a multi-faceted dynamic achiever who successfully dons many hats.

After completing her graduation in Mumbai and further aesthetic training with City and Guilds, UK, she set up her first venture – Priya Kapur – Makeup & Hair in 2005. She authored her coffee table book ‘Bridal Diaries’ (2013) while designing looks for editorials, celebs and brides.

So why has a woman with 28 million followers on Instagram and a fashion collection that has been admired by Anna Wintour and worn by celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow and Sienna Miller failed to break even? 

The pandemic was always going to be particularly brutal for a label we associate with sharp tailoring, tight dresses and high-end work-wear – and Victoria Beckham Beauty, which was launched in autumn 2019, was unfortunately timed.
