My Story

I am Shamyra Moodley, an accountant, writer, mum and now sustainable fashion designer. I have a shared passion for colours, textures, and designing items that spark joy. I use art and fashion to share my narrative about how I see the world through the lenses of my African, Indian, and Irish heritage. Timeless yet quirky silhouettes act as a canvas to weave my heart's desires, transfer emotion, and leave just enough room for poetry.

Art merges with fashion in the sustainable world of LaaniRaani.


Each uniquepiece is lovingly handmadein my home studio withreclaimed T-shirt yarn,vintage sarees and remnantfabric waste. Each LaaniRaani piece has been thoughtfully designed and takes into account our planet and its people. 


I design intuitively; this is what I love, my passion and purpose and the rest I will figure out along the way.
