Kapade is a curated shop, founded by jewelry designer Vaneesha Advani. As a professional woman, Advani has amassed a wealth of experience from working in the fashion industry.
Since studying fashion design at the prestigious Parsons School of Design in New York, she has spent time working in Vancouver, Montreal, and Eindhoven, the Netherlands, while consistently showing at international fashion weeks.
In November 2018, Advani opened KAPADE on a whim. ”I was browsing through the internet and came across the website which had local retail spaces for rent. I just got curious and started to look at them. Not knowing I would get into retail, and to make a long story short, before I knew it I had a space, and once I had a space, I made a commitment,” she remarks with a shy smile.
Due to Pandemic we had to close our retail space in June 2021, however we continue to offer the same collections on our online shop.
Her mindset towards buying echoes this. “I believe in buying clothes which are timeless; I focus on fabrics, shapes, and colours “In the end, it is about my clients; I want them to feel good in them.”
Labels currently stocked at KAPADE includes her own label Designs by Sonia, the traditionally adventurous Ablesia, handcrafted bags by Mutsaers and Volker Lang, multi-functional dresses by Elementum, hand spun, handwoven beautiful line from World of Crow, Maku Textiles and ASA, avant-garde collections from USA-based Nrk Style and Tina Givens and footwear by Spain’s Petrucha Studio. This diverse selection attracts a particular type of customer, according to Advani.
