Last Thursday we hosted the mother of all launch parties at Mumbai’s hot spot, The White Owl alongside India’s fashion a-list, plus our very own Creative Head Honcho, Hoon Kim and Country Manager, Kriti Tula!

The occasion? Er, we have finally launched in India, hence the all-singing (that was just Hoon) all-dancing celebration! Want to go behind the scenes and find out all the party gossip? Then read on!

Who hit up the party…

In a nutshell, the crème de la crème of the fashion world! We had over 100 fashion influencers attend, with prominent guests including the following…

> Little Shilpa, Milliner Designer 
> Sita Wadhwani, Digital Editor & Edward lalrempuia, Fashion Director- Vogue India (Shop his look here!)
> Shruti Thacker, Digital EditorElle India (Shop her look here!)
> Nikhil Thampi, Veteran Indian Designer
> Karishma Rajani, Digital Copy Editor– Noblesse

What we ate and drank…

The White Owl was the venue of choice, complete with video projections on the wall, cool candy floss and customized marshmallows (with little pineapples on them and everything!)

What we boogied to…

DJ Spacejams from Bhavishyavani on the console played some great EDM!

The Highlight….

When we started planning the event, we were expecting to receive 50 guests due to the crazy weather in Mumbai, but despite the pouring weather we had over double that number turn up on the night of the party.

And boy, did we PARTY. We may have started off at White Owl, but India showed us just how to party, moving us on from spot to spot, before we finally ended up at Hoon’s hotel room in the wee small hours

Here’s to the next launch… 😉 

Well hello there, SHOPCADE INDIA!

Stop everything right now and listen up, because we have awesome news. We are FINALLY launching in India!

Yes that’s right, we’re bringing social shopping to the fashionistas of India and we could not be more excited to expand into this market.

Why India, you may very well ponder? Well, why not! The country is going through an e-commerce boom right now and we love to explore new style territory. 😉

If you’re not up to speed with what Shopcade is all about, then let’s rewind and start from the beginning. Here’s five reasons why, if you’re not already on the Shopcade India bandwagon, you need to get on it pronto…

1. Get treated to a new online shopping experience: We curate a trending feed of all the coolest products for you, all day and every day.

2. It’s all Shoppable! The trends you see, the looks you like, the celebs you follow- all available at the click of a button.

3. Things you love, on deal: Who doesn’t want to bag a bargain? We’ll notify you when the products you like go on deal, so you never miss out on the best price. We’re good like that.

4. For the fashionistas by the fashionistas: We represent the young fashion scene with a young team of style correspondents creating relatable and fun content daily.

5. And finally, but most importantly… It’s all about you! Create lists of products you want and post your looks to show off your own individual style.

So now you know the ins and outs, let’s get to the good stuff… The PARTY!! Our offish launch party will be kicking off this Thursday 10th July.

We’ll be living it up at The White Owl, Mumbai from 7pm onwards, with co-host by Little Shilpa, beats courtesy of DJ Space Jams, and a guest list to rival any A-list party! We’re talking the likes of Elle India, Harper’s Bazaar India, plus a whole host of prolific fashion bloggers hitting up the venue.

If that wasn’t enough you’ll be able to pose and post your look on the evening direct onto the app and indulge your sweet tooth with our secret message marshmallows and candy floss!

The only thing left to do is go shopping for our party dress! Good job we know an app for that 😉
