    Malini Ramani launches her edgy Spring Summer line today

    Veteran designer Malini Ramani has dressed everyone from Celina Jaitley to Tabu and Nargis Fakhri. She launches her Spring Summer 2015 collection, The Tribe today at Evoluzione. We got her talking on everything from fashion to her plans for 2015 ahead of the launch.

    More on The Tribe.
    The Tribe stands for the feminine warrior of Love. Popular hand-dyed drapes, miracle jumpsuits and luxe mirror details are some of the elements we have reinvented for this collection.

    The collection in one sentence.
    It is comfortable, sexy, tribal and edgy with the Malini signature feminine feel.

    Inspiration.
    I was inspired to work with a more subdued colour palette, draping and experimenting with dyeing techniques. I used all the elements that I normally love to work with but pushed it all up a notch…so it looks more sophisticated.

    Colour wheel.
    I’ve used subtle shades like cream, black, fig and indigo. I love the colours because they are earthy and tribal. These earth tones are easy to wear anytime and look good on Indian as well as lighter skin tones.

    Silhouettes used.
    There are silhouettes for customers of every shape and size. All the ones I love the most. From capes to wraps to jumpsuits, sari drapes, kaftan tops and harem pants too.

    The ideal Malini Ramani girl.
    A confident woman who loves adventure and is not afraid to stand out in a crowd. She is feminine, flirtatious and most importantly, loves a blend of the East and West.

    Traditional to modern
    transformation.
    I’ve taken the traditional mirror work and interpreted it in a completely contemporary way, like fitted net dresses in earthy browns.

    Plans for 2015.
    2015 is full of hope and promise. A year of completion and growth. I am very excited about it. One of the things I am doing this year is my yoga teachers’ training. I am also working on a yoga and a shoe line.
