Profile: Kapitza

James Brown may be many things, including a septuagenarian, the hardest-working man in show business, an expert on the effects of PCP on a fugitive's perception, and the godfather of soul. He also knows that this is "a man's, man's, man's world." It's as true of Mr Brown's showbiz world as it is of London's design scene in the year 2006.

"It's a boys' network, isn't it?" says Nicole Kapitza matter-of-factly in the East London studio she shares with her sister Petra. "In college, it's probably more like 50/50, or more women, and the same applies to freelance," adds Petra. "But if you go to companies, the design world is so male dominated. I don't know where all the women are - I think it's difficult for women to even climb up the ladder."
