What is effervescence without a spot of funk and what is Malini Ramani without a large measure of both? Meet the designer who dares to put her joie de vivre firmly on the style radar. Fashion's very own enfant terrible Malini Ramani has always defied rules to create with the courage of conviction - the conviction to follow the dictates of her heart. A quintessential rebel without a pause, for Malini the endeavour is to constantly push the envelope by breaking away from the obvious and adding a dash of cheer to the mundane. Little wonder then that her ensembles are always original, bursting with zest in a happy medley of colours, cuts and cascades of shimmer.

Born in New York and deposited in Sanawar in India by her father at the age of 11, Malini's life has always traversed an eclectic path with constant hyperbole! Not one to be confined by disciplinarian authorities for too long, she ran away from school a few years hence. Destination New York to study Fashion Merchandising at FIT and back to India in 1990.  An era when the country was witnessing a revival of the youth and Malini plunged headlong in the moment to savour it to the fullest. Thus began a bohemian pursuit of creativity in every possible sphere. And every experience has left an indelible stamp on Malini's style evolution, be it stints with the radio and television, trotting on the ramp, managing nightclubs, penning gossip columns, relationships or spirituality.
