As chief executive officer and president of Shoppers Stop, the country’s leading department store chain, Govind Shrikhande has been part of the careening growth of India’s retail market over the last 17 years.
He has left the retailer after a significant nine months: Amazon India invested in Shoppers Stop last November, three key investments were sold and the company is on the path to become debt free by the end of this financial year in March 2019. Shoppers Stop reported a net profit of 97.70 million rupees, or $1.42 million at current exchange for the quarter ended June 30, versus a net loss of 37.10 million rupees, or $530,000, in the corresponding quarter a year ago.
Ganni turned over a new leaf for spring 2019, reports @fionawsma from Copenhagen Fashion Week. Instead of sending its signature floral-print dresses down the runway, the brand collaborated with 66 North, a technical outerwear brand, and produced a chic-yet-utilitarian offering that included a tie-dye vest and short set, and leopard-print pieces sprinkled among the khaki parkas and bucket hats. #wwdfashion #ganni #copenhagenfashionweek

“I’ve been an actress since I was like 10 or 12, and then I went to drama school. I have a technique, and I have a process that I bring to every role. And I can talk about it, but that kind of makes it less magic, and also when I talk about it, it makes me feel like I’m full of myself,” ‘Crazy Rich Asians Star’ Constance Wu tells @leighen .(📸: @emmanmontalvan: styled by @micaelaerlanger ) #wwdeye #crazyrichasians #constancewu
