The brainchild of Ms. Rina Rani Mehta, Florina Charm School was the first of its kind in India, taking Mumbai by storm in 1961.

Besides receiving a post-graduation in Kathak dance, Rina Rani was trained at the Lucy Clayton’s Charm and Modelling School, London. Her school in Mumbai, India, was a rave amongst students from all over the country, and she nurtured each with immense care and soft-spoken grace. In each and every aspirant, she inculcated a winning combination of inner balance and outer poise.

She conducted many top-of-the-line modelling shows in India and abroad with models like Protima Bedi, Persis Khambatta, Annabella Crawford, Katy Mirza and others.

Under her wing, her daughter, Saloni Duggal, grew up to evolve from a child model and a Kathak dance enthusiast, starting at the age of three, to a full-fledged model and Jazz Ballet dancer as a youth.

She possesses a baccalaureate in English and Psychology along with a Law Degree like her father.

After attending the Florina Charm School Teacher’s Training Programme under her mother’s tutelage, Saloni took on the exciting challenge of bringing Florina Charm School to Bangalore, India, in 2003, under its new banner –Florina Finishing School.

Saloni attended and received certification from the famous Modern-Day Charm and Finishing School, U.S.A. with Gloria Starr.
She has been individually tutored and certified by Tamiko Zablith, the Managing Director of Minding Manners International Finishing School in U.K.
