Daddy’s Little Dynamos – Ayesha Kapur
AYESHA KAPUR, Founder, Ayesha Accessories
Life and fashion on the streets of Mumbai, New York, Berlin and Tokyo.
Living in a big city without my family.
I always ask myself ‘Who I am and what I want to achieve’. But I try to live in the moment and find happiness within my constant moment of truth.
On being a woman leader
This has its own advantages and disadvantages; only when it has neither, there will be equality.
Vision for the company
Aim for the stars. We’d like to open around a 100 more shops and be the trendsetters for accessories in India.
On dealing with seniors who worked with her parents (Jaqueline and Dilip Kapur)
We have a very cool team in Ayesha, so we all have fun working together, regardless of the age of the people.
Being in the wrong locations is sometimes a lesson learned too late. Once you are stuck in a bad mall or even at just the wrong location within a good mall, it becomes tough.
A small plane, so I can quickly visit my family, friends, cats, dogs and horses in Pondicherry, whenever I feel like.
I can be happy about the smallest thing, like seeing a pretty bird.
Acting, designing, travelling and writing.
I am scared of snakes in spite of growing up in a jungle.
Most expensive jewel
A diamond bracelet from my mother.
Favourite childhood memory
My experiences during the filming of Black and growing up in the lush environs of Auroville.
I love good food, going to spas…and being in love.
Expensive hair and body products.
An Andalusian stallion, Estigon.
An all-time wardrobe favourite
My grandmother’s vintage jumpsuit from the ’70s and my high heel leather boots from a boutique in Berlin.
