Former Supermodel Tapur Chatterji Turns Entrepreneur
In the ever-changing landscape of contemporary times, there’s more career crossover now than ever before.
Granddaughter of veteran film director Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Tapur Chatterji who made a mark as of India’s most formative supermodels in 90’s has recently forayed into design and interiors and launched her own entrepreneur outfit.
With a background in art and architecture from Rachna School Of Art And Architecture, national award winner Tapur has utilised her decade long experience in the fashion world to breathe aesthetics into her design venture.
Projects for Soha Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan already feature as part of the professional repertoire of ‘Tapur Chatterji– Design & Decor’
Speaking about her foray Tapur Chatterji states, “Designing has always been my childhood dream. While modelling was accidental, designing was destined. When I design something I am creating a brand new extension of myself and this process is quite exciting. From an inspiration perspective I love structured patterns that evolve in a fluid and innovative way. There is a lot of Moorish Architecture that influences my line of thought.”
Endorsing Tapur Chatterji’s body of work Soha Ali Khan adds on, “Tapur designed Inaaya’s nursery and it was perfect. She executed our vision perfectly. She has impeccable taste and is thorough in her work personally overseeing every tiny detail until it is exact. She extends herself beyond the scope of work and is such a wonderful person to work with on something as precious and potentially stressful as designing your baby’s room.”
On the international front, supermodels like Kate Moss, Lindsey Wixson amongst others have successfully dabbled in interior design and architecture.
