By Pepita Diamand

In spite of her international outlook, or perhaps because of it, architect and designer India Madhavi personifies Paris Style. Whether creating a restaurant in Hong Kong, a hotel in Maimi or an office in London, Madhavi brings Parisian flair to all of her projects through a hallmark blend of casual sophistication, sexiness and irreverence. Born in Iran and celebrated around the globe (with a particularly strong following in the US) Madhavi chooses to remain Paris-based, citing the quality of life in the city she loves, as second to none.
