    Job Experience

  • Print Design

    To understand the nature of print design, the derivation of prints from an image was the first challenge. Further explorations are based on the nature of the surface observed in the image.

    Subsequently the process of screen printing on fabrics and in different color interactions was learnt.

  • Projects


    Focussing on reuse of waste strings of LED lights, the essence of functionality or aesthetics via design techniques was used to make repurposed products with them. Textile techniques such as stitching and weaving were used to make finalized prototypes.

    The basic element : Non-functioning LED lightsExplorations with the working LEDs as products that can be reused later

  • Projects

    Woven apparel

    The fabrics developed are designed on the prin-ciple of efficiency and reuse. The fabric made in the initial range is of a fine nature with good texture and a certain degree of translucency.

    Saki ori weaving is a method of looming together strips of old cloth. Japanese saki ori employs pieces of cloth along with threads to weave the saki ori.

    After buy-back, this fabric is to be developed into a range of constituted fabrics of a much heavier and textured feel.

  • Projects

    Spatial design

    For the space enclosed within the Calico Dome in Ahmedabad, I developed a braided tesselation canopy, on which creepers are planted. This design is for the benefit of the visitors and residents in the adjoining famous pols in the area.

    The design provides them with a space with clean air and greenery to relax and enjoy the beautiful renovated structure which is a part of the Heritage Walk in the city of Ahmedabad.

    I developed a range of Chanderi sarees for Rajesh Pratap Singh, for Spring Summer 2013 season. The sarees were targeted for the contemporary working woman, and were showcased recently.

    The themes of placement motifs (the leafs), tradi-tional motifs, geometric, as well as motifs isolated from Chanderis rich architectural heritage, were used for designing various ranges of sarees.

    Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week SS13

    Reference artwork of H.R.Giger Illustration print developed Final print and printed fabric The garment on the runway

    At the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week, I had a new experience with understanding how the fashion shows work as an event as well as a designer-client interaction.

    I had developed a digital print for a garment in the Spring Summer 2013 show, based on the artwork of renowned artist H.R.Giger.

  • Diploma Project

    Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week AW13

    In this Fashion Week, I developed an embroidery pattern for a garment. Howevere, the bigger aspect of the show I was handling was the set design. Trees attached with LEDs were stationed on either

    sides of the runway and lit up at a certain point of the show. This required resourcefullness and much aesthetic input from my side, while keeping the set practical for the event.
