Diploma Project Imperial Garden – A Graduation Project Exploring the Art of Parsi Gara
Swasti Singh Ghai


The project was propelled with a goal to design contemporary Parsi Garas for upper middle class segment of clients with a fresh take on traditional designs. The collection was based on oriental Chinese motifs of jade carving and the aesthetics of Parsi Garas. The collection displayed richly embroidered motifs of exotic flora and fauna. The second collection adopted the essence of traditional forms of textiles and Chinese paintings and translated them into digital printed designs. The artwork for the collection was hand printed and was later explored in terms of scale, placement and transparency.
