Beloved And Adored
At just age fifty Simple Kapadia lost her battle with cancer in November after a valiant struggle of three years. Simple is now beyond and above her innumerable detractors who derided her initial ambition to be a great actress. Instead Simple became a successful designer of resplendent costumes. I will always remember her outspokeness and absence of the ability to be "coy" in a cosmos that has two faces. Simple's outstanding work as a costume designer will live forever on the screen of Bollywood. For the time Simple graced us with her presence in this world she gave us quality and not quantity. This day God hath his Lovemark angel who designs with all the colours of the rainbow; beloved and adored Simple Kapadia.

I would love to wear her designs
Simple Kapadia is to Bollywood what Edith Head was to Hollywood. Simple is highly eclectic in her production of costume designs. She has a high sense of aesthetics and elegance, without ostentation. Her comprehension of both Western and Eastern costume design is awesome. This may be attributed to the fact that she was in front of the camera as an actress for ten years before she became a designer. Simple Kapadia for me is one of the great undiscovered beauties of our time. That is why Simple Kapadia is a singular lovemark, because she has weighed form against function, colour against structure and the parameters of the films involved. Through this Euclidean mind’s definitive costumes and talent we have had the priviledge to access a higher reality. Simple is a lovemark because few have been on both sides of the camera and and had the comprehension of each without detriment to the other. I would love to wear her designs if ever she decided to design for the public.

She has beautified the world
Simple Kapadia is a Bollywood costume designer whose clothes are conceptually exceptional. The illumined emanation is from the Simple’s ingenuity and sense of perfection. Structurally the costumes are created to the imperative of the core essence. It is as if Simple Kapadia has found a window on the absolute of allowing critical energy to do its work through her. Her selection of colours is Byzantine and warm hued. Simple Kapadia is my lovemark because she has beautified the world with her fabulous confections and the love and joy with which she approaches this is more than apparent.
