BA(Hons) Fashion Design and Textiles

Varsha is a final-year Fashion Design and Textiles student who is passionate about the world of digital fashion. She is driven by the desire to rethink the sustainability of the fashion industry through the use of technology and innovation. She is here to enjoy the butterflies, enjoy being naive, and to enjoy the nerves and pressure. She also hopes to learn as much as she can in the process!



Why do I feel like an outsider living in such a culturally accepting foreign country? I sometimes can be in a crowded room, filled with laughter, and all the craic in the world, and yet feel so homesick and alone.

To overcome this daunting thought, Varsha started looking into the practices of yoga and meditation. The ultimate purpose of yoga and meditation is to get oneself to slow down and be calmer, and notice that we can appreciate life better when we take the time to do so.

This collection explores the arts of yoga and meditation, and its significance within Hindu mythology. It explores the notions of the Sri Yantra and mandala as symbolic representations of unmanifest power of the universe. The creative process of making mandalas helps to revisit the universal experience embodied in the circle and also to reflect on the essence of who we are in the here and now. The project explores sacred geometry and its applications in creating mandalas and towards the study of cymatics to produce creative outcomes.

108 is a digital fashion collection, empowering wearers to be whoever they wish to be, and to experiment with their styles in the metaverse. It also aims to cut down on production and sampling wastes by first creating in a digital space and later replicating it as a physical twin, when required.
