Indrani Royan started Ranipink Studio in 2013. Born in Assam, Indrani made Bengaluru her home after marriage and is “influenced by the varied hues and styles of Assam and namma Bengaluru. I draw inspiration from the rich Indian heritage and give it a touch of modernity.”

Always having a passion for design, Indrani chose fashion over music and graduated from Pearl Academy, New Delhi. She then went on to assist some of the leading designers in the industry before branching out on her own.

Her studio gradually grew famous and she recently participated at the Blender’s Pride Bangalore Fashion Week at Sheraton Grand Bengaluru, where she showcased her latest collection celebrating the urban woman. Called “An Ode To The Urban Princess”, the collection grabbed eyeballs at the show for its bright hues, cuts and styling. Indrani says, “It is a collection for the metropolitan woman who is a go-getter. The clothes are a balance of modern styles and ethnic roots to mirror the various roles of an urban woman. It is a celebration of their undying resolve, style and exquisite beauty.”

Though she loves Indian and Western wear, Indrani says she is partial to Indian weaves and designs as “they are colourful and we can work wonders with the vast options that we have.” She draws inspiration from ancient monuments. “Incorporating style elements from them is a challenge,” the young designer adds insisting that to be a good designer one has to study the history of design.

She is not “bogged down” by the competition and commenting that “the creating aspect does not stress me out, but the marketing does. But, even that can’t stop me from designing.” Indrani plans to add traditional designs and weaves from her homeland, Assam, in her collections. “The North has more bling in its designs, where as here people like subtle work with beads, threads and weaves. I try and blend both the styles in my work.”

All her designs are worked on crepe, satin, raw silk and path muga “as they give a rich look”.
