so on & so forth…


B. Research
We hunt through relevent websites;international books; magazines & trends in the market to precipitate on themes OR ideas.


C. Theme Board
Based on the brief from the client & our research; a theme board is developed which shows the colours; the ideas; the motifs & patterns; the accessories; type of fabrics; the ambience etc..This helps in giving a preview to the client of the look of the designs and helps the client to reflect on the concept & give his feedback so the relevence of the design is maintained.Once the story board is approved we freeze the colour palette & the concept.


D. Fabrics Design
Taking the theme board as the premises the fabrics are designed. All the fabrics are designed in actual scale & have the details of warp/weft; reed/pick; count/construction etc in case of wovens; actual print artwork with repeat in case of prints & tracings & embroidery details in case of surface ornamentations.


E. Product Styling
The fabrics design are then scaled down for the styling of the products. Scaled down version of all the made ups are provided which gives the client a very clear idea as to how the finished product would look even before venturing onto its execution. It helps in doing required changes at the artwork stage. These artworks could also be used for a presentation to the buyer & get their feed back before the sampling.


F. 3D Draping.
3D draping through software gives you a feel of any product without making any sample. It is useful in saving the sample execution time & money involved in the sampling. BUT the better use of this draping software is visualizing the products. It will give 99% accurate picture like samples. So the buyer can visualize the product without any sample.


G. Follow up
Vaishali Design Studio also keeps a track of the progress of sampling of the designs. This helps the client to visualize & achieve the best results. It also gives us a feed back of the strengths & limitations of the client & the designs.
