SPARSH (Touch) is something that we can’t miss out on. It is considered to be one of the most significant sensory phenomenon. My concept is inspired by BRAILLE, a system that helps visually challenged people to read and write through touch. Such special people can feel and know about physical space by smell, sound and touch. The story, Sparsh, is simple yet liberating making it a powerful artwork. The idea of ‘Sparsh’ arose from the concept of lift buttons where along with the numeric symbols, there are raised dots which is the concept of braille used by the visually challenged people. I gathered more information by spending my day at a Blind Association. With one of their sessions called ‘Vision in the Dark’ helped me fathom their experience. The story and the garment is fabricated to inspire and to get inspired.

OWN ARENA 2. 8 MANSI AGARWAL/ B.DESIGN- FASHION DESIGN/ 2016-2020
OWN ARENA is about modern design that honours past. Expect classic and outdoor styles to be subverted with a streetwear edge. This concept arose from the 90’s movie ‘CLUELESS’. The Focus is on making better, without replacing classics. Streetwear will remain an important driver for women’s wear, but it will be updated with a more formal aesthetic. Embracing a more experimental approach to shape, colour and styling. Shake up traditions by pairing unusual colours such as mustard with black and white checks.

‘DAILY HEADLINES’ is a research-based project where I get inspiration from ‘The Newspaper’and study in detail about the popular newspapers, top news, layout etc. I created my own section in ‘Nations Eye’, the PAGE 4, as a theme board by creating some puzzled artworks which is written in a form of unsolved criminal cases and it will come after the Fame page no. 3.
TREND board In an uncertain and increasingly politicised world, CREATIVE MANIFESTO explores the instinct to stand out and make an impact. For womenswear, this results in bold, unapologetic designs that make a statement. The Focus here is on FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION. (TREND STORY BY WGSN)
CLIENT board My Client is a Product Design student. She is focused on more internal thoughts, inward turnings, feelings and moods rather than seeking out external stimulation. She likes to read books of Agatha Christie and get inspired to make an bold, unapologetic statement.
MYSTERIOUS- In this mood, things are hidden and puzzling. 13 MANSI AGARWAL/ B.DESIGN- FASHION DESIGN/ 2016-2020

FOLDED FORMS CONSIDERED COMFORT The rise of artisan kidswear brands signify a new-found respect for skilled workmanship within the premium market. Complex pattern cutting in the form of structured folds, tucks and pleats create strikingly structured silhouettes, but also still work with the body. - Trend Story by WGSN

‘Folded Forms’ is an experiment with a fusion of style and Function, incorporating layers to create textures for Kidswear. The Inspiration came from the Japanese craft ‘ORIGAMI’. Origami is the art of folding paper into shapes. I tried to do origami with fabric instead of paper to reconstruct the classics in the form of silhouettes by keeping comfort in mind.
