Kavita Koparkar owner of Papillon studio and the first Indian to have been trained from Cinema Makeup school Los Angeles, USA, has got yet another feather in her cap at such a young age.
Throwing the doors open to her latest and biggest venture so far, how does it feel?
Kavita -" Feels amazing, this being my dream venture and my dream come true after hard work and lot of efforts put in. "Working in the industry for 10 years she knew what were the areas she had to work on and improve especially after the rapid growth and globalization.
"The bridal make up and grooming industry is one of the most rapidly growing one almost parallel with the film industry. "
"Weddings in India are a big affair and still there is a dearth of many things in Pune as well as Maharashtra regarding this" and you surely want to change this scene I chip in.
"First and foremost there was a need for a dedicated Bridal space to concentrate only on the bride and avoid the chaos and others problems which pertain to working on the bride at the venue which has shortcomings like special and adequate lights or space, wedding jitters due to all this which curtails my work and final outcome". Kavita says " it's funny and yet exciting now that I think of, I had the entire picture clear in my mind, right from the concept to the visualization everything was crystal clear to the hilt. Infact the people who were working on executing my concept also find it funny that how I knew it more than them that how the final picture is going to take shape." This just shows the confidence and clear goal she had in mind. Her goal being providing the Bride complete luxury and an experience to cherish right from the time the bride enters the studio. Kavita says, " Every bride on entering my studio should be like Oh Wow! and that should be the start of her journey into the fantasy and wedding fervor. Where I want to pamper the bride with comfort and luxury and treat her like a princess on her special day."
Kavita tells us her concept studio has been getting overwhelming response and it has taken the wedding experience of any bride to a notch higher.
She has big dreams for the future, " I want the brand to grow many folds, I have also started a academy in the studio, where my aim is to prepare parallel line of artists who are really good and efficient. I want to make the courses more structured, provide internships and take this venture to a higher level." On this note we bid adieu to her wishing her all the luck.
Kavita Koparkar studio has definitely opened a gamut of bridal services and experience for the brides to be of Pune.
