Living her dream in this glorious era, is Priya Kapur, of Mumbai. This multi-faceted dynamic young achiever wears many hats, and successfully so.
After completing her graduation and training with City and Guilds, UK, she set up her first venture - Priya Kapur - Makeup & Hair in 2005. She added a feather in her cap with her coffee table book ‘Bridal Diaries’ (2013). She furthered herself in the business of beauty by designing looks for editorials, celebs and brides.
While grooming lay the foundation for this path, she added another dimension to her business disposition with her jewellery venture. Not content with consolidating her position as business woman with a successful stint of over a decade in the world of grooming, she founded ‘The Glocal Trunk’ (TGT) an online fashion Jewellery retail platform (ecommerce – start-up) under her company Glocal Trunk LLP in 2016.
Walking in her father’s footsteps, she’s now gearing to take over the mantle of the family business from her father, Mr Ravikant Kapur. Having honed her business acumen with on-ground experience, she earned her place as the Director of Grentex and Co Pvt. Ltd. & GR Woollen Mills, her family business.
A perfect example of 2020’s International Women’s Day theme, Balance For Better, Priya balances her responsibilities in the professional and personal sphere quite effectively.
Her brand TGT’s initiative TGT Growth Buys is a special platform for bringing out the talent and creativity of women artisans and differently-abled individuals. She’s has a recruitment to the Indian Merchants Chambers - Ladies Wing and a membership with the Indo-German Chambers of Commerce to her credit, which empowers her to make a difference where it matters.
Inspired by her mother’s humility and her father’s diligence, she believes she has found the potent formula for success, especially relevant in today’s times when superficiality is fast becoming the norm. Striving to build a successful home while scaling her business, Priya believes is the perfect way to lead a balanced life.
Manifesting the vision of developing TGT as the trusted go to destination for all fashion accessories, while maintaining the existent quality and price points, she’s now working on a private label under the banner. Following the philosophy of Winner Never Quit & Quitters Never Win, Priya asserts that her journey has only just begun. Creativity has no limit and there’s always a way to make your dreams a reality – she propounds.
