Funds for the preparation, cutting and sewing her own clothes, she began to dress with a target of different appearance. She saw the material and ruined a lot of clothes - but some of her outfits won her many compliments. In fact, many of his creations is the result of trial and error. It belonged to an orthodox Sikh family wishing to make a perfect hostess to her - teach her to cook and clean. But she took care of his personal dream so close to his heart. The girl was called Bina Lalvani.

The transition from girl to an independent career woman protected, a fashion designer with a devoted fan, the change of Bina Ramani to Bina Lalvani has been a rollercoaster of Bina teach you something constructive to each phase and enrichment of experience and emotions.
Bina has always had a love for old things. Objets d'art, lace, rich brocades and traditional beads. She was completely captivated by the mystery behind the ancient textiles. The era, the period when they accounted for much excited. She longed to give these drugs for a period of a new life. She began to develop international and modern design of these traditional fabrics provided them with a mixture of ancient and modern styles.

Her first collection hit the display window of Bloomingdales. She saw herself taking a step towards the realization of his childhood dreams. But she knew she had to grow, develop and settle in India. She had a burning desire to share everything she had learned in London and New York (where she went after her marriage) with people in India. She loved old textiles and India was a real treasure. Then the inevitable happened. She landed in Delhi with a suitcase full of creative ideas and his heart full of enthusiasm for itself as a designer in the country she loved the most.

Once in Inda, Bina combing the country looking for vintage fabrics. She has always wanted his clothes have a theme as the beginning of your design with rich brocades and colorful as Benares. Then he discovered the old habits patola in Gujarat and Orissa in bright colors are ikats and Hyderabad.

All thanks to a surprising ability to work hard, Bina himself has gone to the shops of towns and cities, looting each pole of old sarees look for something unique. He went to a sari theme, design and color. He dreamed of "color jewel," as emerald, purple and magenta. At Banaras and Gujarat, came to the families to find a rich tradition of craftsmanship. Spread the word of "long-Delhi, a woman," who arrives to find fabrics and Bina started collections.

She began designing jackets, long skirts, pants-shaped salwar in sixteen models, peasant tops and sophisticated robes of brocade, silk and fabrics. Since its overall concept design and direction of its base fabric was so new, that his house was flooded with friends and clients. There was a great need for a separate output from which it could make these dresses. The result was "Once Upon a time a workshop, which quickly gained a reputation for storing some of the drawings the richest and most exotic. The clothes appeal to both Indians and foreigners touring Delhi. It is soon became a matter of prestige to own a dress from a Bina Ramani collection. The store had a separate identity because of its unusual location, it was not in an area of ​​the mall, or located in a nice place Delhi. In fact, Bina has always believed in doing things his own style and creativity has always come up with unique ideas.

So she chose the most unusual place he took up his first time. He was among the ancient ruins near the famous Qutub Minar in Mehrauli, Delhi. In fact, part of the ruins, where she chose to design haute couture shop was part of Khan "Aish" (House of Pleasure) kings, who had been converted into a home for poor women. She women working with virtually no work experience and training in a support team and experts.

Bina has always considered its size and its inspiration, many of his new creations were draped on his own part of the pilot phase to assess their cases. She always had a personal sympathy for the fluid and loose clothing instead of the figure hugging. In fact, it is a big proponent of the theory that a good designer is like an artist who can create clothes that hide errors and improve the functions of a good body. In addition, she has always wanted to create clothes that are a mixture of majestic appearance and comfort. Soon she realized that the sari itself a place suitable for the figure of an Indian woman of limited movement of the wearer. It would again be unconventional and change the normal way to drape a saree. Thus, the requirement of six feet was broken and resulted in sari clothing more comfortable with more space to move freely.

Bina Ramani designer had arrived. His dream had come true, but had to broaden their horizons. His real business sense to integrate his creative mind he felt the direction of development. He felt the need for an electrical outlet in his clothes from abroad. He had already seen the popularity of Finnish designer with foreigners. So what's better than the expansion of "Once Upon a Time" in New York? He always had the graphics for its taking clear in his mind. He did not want money taken churning, but an institution which is also spoken of the rich culture and tradition of their country. This is why "Once Upon a Time," New York dressed "Look at Limit". Boutique size, tastefully furnished with a touch of India, a min-India in New York.

With the growing business Bina wanted a space for her sewing shop. He was looking for this piece, she met her greatest discovery in Hauz Khas Village. It is the brightest feather in the cap Bina. Hauz Khas village was small sleepy village in the heart of New Delhi near a 13th century monument overlooking a reservoir. Bina took real roots in this village. It became part of the village, and families soon come to her with their problems. Completely captivated by the beauty of the place and the warmth of the people Bina played with yet another idea.                                   

What if this village typical Indian ambience was transformed into a center designer Delhi. She began to communicate with all other designers from Delhi to come together and to open stores in the region of origin intact. The success of the project which, today, every designer who has a name in New Delhi wants to be a part of the village Hauz Khas. The site has evolved into an excellent shopping center, where you can buy everything from clothes to furniture design for plants. It soon became a center for the fashion conscious Delhiites. Was it also a place to visit on the roads of visitors to the city.

But Bina is always more to do. His latest development is a "Room with a View", a fascinating gallery of Hauz Khas village, where he demonstrated not only their own creations, but also in men's clothing designed by Dilshad Khan and Nandita Suri. He used the theme created by Mughal Neelam Soni from Nagpur, Meera Nair and jewelry from the summer collection Karuna Khaitan.

To promote young talent and new creators Bina opened the doors of his "Room with a View" for them. She decided to select two or three students from the National Institute of Fashion Technology every year and invite them to their first exhibition in his gallery. This way they can benefit from traffic already circulating in the right customers and get a great exposure.

Bina has always worked to create an element of surprise in his clothes - in the embroidery or buttons or the lack of matching dupatta still looked good with the whole.
