Whether it’s as a singer, a Bollywood star, a member of the Voice India jury or as head of her own fashion label, House of Chikankari, Kanika Kapoor always puts the emphasis on stylish elegance. Born in India and based in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, she has used her fashion label to develop the art of embroidery and textile decoration. This is one of many reasons why she is looking forward to seeing Ambiente, the world’s leading trade fair, in person: “It’s my privilege to be a part of one of the leading trade fairs of the world, Ambiente, and be invited to represent India on an international platform. I am looking forward to the overall experience, and it’s immensely commendable to be able to bring over 160 countries together over five days”, says Kanika Kapoor.
Kapoor is visiting the world’s biggest consumer goods trade fair on the Monday of the trade fair. She is hoping to gain a preview of the colours, trends and innovations that will dominate interior decoration in the coming season. For her, the main point of attraction will be the partner country presentation Hand Make as well as several leading Indian and international exhibitors.
Kanika Kapoor was born in Lucknow, India. Her first song, Jugni Ji, became a major commercial success in 2012. She started her Bollywood playback career in 2014 when she sang Baby Doll for the film Ragini MMS 2 – a song that went viral and stayed in the charts for a long time. Further successes came with Lovely and Kamlee for Happy New Year. Kanika Kapoor also went on a concert tour through North America with Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone. She will be sharing her singing experience with young talents as a coach in the next Voice India series.
In 2016 she became a brand ambassador for the Swiss watchmaking company 88 rue du Rhone, an independent brand by Raymond Weil. She has also been a brand ambassador for Samsung since 2018. In addition to her career as a singer, Kapoor is involved in an NGO that promotes children’s education.
