20.6.2015 POWER WOMEN IN MEDIA COLLABORATE
Two dynamic women media entrepreneurs, drawn from fashion, lifestyle and luxury journalism in India, prove that two heads are better than one! Jasmeen G Dugal, Founder Managing Editor of Luxury Style Portal ExplosiveFashion.in and Ethel Da Costa, Award Winning Founder Director of Media and Lifestyle Entertainment Firm Think Geek Media join hands and skill sets to raise the bar on work hard, play harder lifestyle solutions and cutting edge journalism. The result of this collaboration? They provide smart insights into key trends in fashion, beauty and hospitality and create strategies that redefine businesses. They innovate opportunities for themselves and others — discovering and showcasing people, places and events that inspire awe. But essentially, they are new age thinkers and doers, who have the knowledge, the know-how and the courage to think ahead.
With rich media experience and an ambitious outlook on women in media making strides in India — Ms Dugal, former Net Editor Condenast India, and Ms Da Costa, former Femina, Radio Mirchi, International Film Festival of India Media Head — aim to drive the fashion-lifestyle-luxury segment. Both firebrands are 'very excited.' Says Ms Dugal, "I launched the first fashion website in India ten years back and harnessed the power of social media marketing as a branding tool, helmed Vogue India website for three years and then launched my own luxury portal with a database of 2 million+ readers. I am so excited to partner with Ethel Da Costa — a fearless, sincere and ambitious lady who has put the accurate face of Goa on the global map and continues to raise the bar with stellar events, alliances and coverage of those who deserve to be out there". "For years I have worked to position Goa as a lifestyle destination. Niche is everything. It is a clutter breaker. That's who we are too," concludes Ms Da Costa.
