Vanilla Luxury turns TWO and Celebrates with 8 Successful Women
Have we really turned 2? Yes, admittedly, I was so caught up with work last year that I had completely forgotten about celebrating our 1st anniversary. We can all thank Bianco, Vanilla Luxury’s New Year’s Eve Countdown for that, which we recently rocked again for the 2nd year just 3 weeks ago at Skyline.
Vanilla Luxury all started thanks to Mr. Aaghir Yadav who I’ve known for 5 years. From being his client back then to finally being convinced to start Vanilla Luxury, a luxury lifestyle marketing agency; he really drove me to where we are today.
I remember meeting Shireena Shroff Manchharam, founder of House of Sheens and it’s always a chicken and egg thing with marketing and sales so I thought to myself, if we have a full team of designers, copywriters, publicists, why can’t we create something that allows start ups to utilise our resources within their budget and that’s how Vanillaluxury.sg started.
It was really 16 working hours and my nights would typically end at 2.30 am working on the initial online portal on top of the marketing agency that has now turned into a digital magazine and focuses on content curation with a reach of over 250,000 people.
2 months into the business, we organised Valentine Vendetta which won a Silver award in PR garnering over $250,000 in media coverage and we will be hosting it’s 6th year at Skyline, with a twist to the concept.
To conclude the last 2 years, we have achieved several milestones not forgetting Sky Grande Prix, our post F1 party that garnered over 2 million dollars in media coverage and hosted over 20,000 people to date.
Although our Anniversary event was a tribute to professional women and my team comprises of several female rockstars, however, we couldn’t have done this without the men either.
With that said, here are 8 women who have inspired or supported me and they were all dressed up by the affordable luxury fashion label Jo Kilda.
Eloquent, exuberant and wickedly funny, Mumbai-born and Singapore-raised media personality Anita Kapoor needs no introduction. She lights up the small screen, artfully commands as an emcee and speaker, is a social media maniac, this woman does it all.
Some of you may already know her thanks to her inspiring book “The Devil Could Not Break Me”. Lurata battled through war in the former Yugoslavia and was held captive and abused. She now is a public speaking coach, motivational speaker and helps others turn their pain to gain in business or on a personal level.
