After studying Fashion Merchandising and Buying at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, Ramani returned to New Delhi and tried on several aesthetic hats—nightclubs, television and design. Five years later she narrowed it down to fashion design and has since been the designer the girls flock to for high-octane glamorous body-sculpting party wear with her most memorable collection being' Rock star meets Indian Princess'.
What is refreshing about her label is that she only creates things she would love to wear… Moroccan-inspired kaftans slashed to the knee, jumpsuits engraved with Mayan and Aztec swirls, sculpted gowns with plunging necklines and cinched waists or tie-dye cocktail dresses.
Lately, her sharp albeit comfortable collections are a vehicle of creative expression since she undertook a Kundalini Yoga teaching course in Bali. Though the past has a lot of pull on Ramani, she is not mired in it. Offering a pure distillation of free spirit steeped in inspiration of her inclination towards spirituality and yoga, her muse is a woman who is comfortable in her skin and carries off both glam, bohemian ensembles and relaxed athleisure. "I like to reinvent my design aesthetic" she grins.
