• Tanvi Malik-Co-founder Elevaete

Tanvi Malik is a transdisciplinary designer working on apparel, interiors and experiences, using design thinking to apply herself across industries for positive social impact. Through the dual-degree programme at the New School in New York City, she received a BFA of Integrated Design/Apparel Design from Parsons and a BA of Literary Studies/Non-Fiction Writing from Eugene Lang College. She has worked in architecture firms, sportswear brands, nightlife events and startups designing products, spaces and experiences. As fitness has had a big influence on her development and with a background in sports apparel/retail, in 2016 she co-founded Elevaete, a made-in-UAE activewear brand for women with a focus on social impact through positive community engagement. Her personal conviction is to encourage education and creation across disciplines and so she also co-founded the Dubai chapter of LWD. Currently, she works on Elevaete, interior/exterior design in New York and Dubai, and creates identities and brand experiences for startups.
