Paras Creations, a regular at ARTE since 2009, loves making rosettes and including them into her fashion line and accessories. She comes from a line of talented artists and is a proud mother to two daughters (who love posing in the clothes mama makes). She loves using vintage items, recycling small cuttings and using them as inclusions in headbands and hairclips.
Originally from Pakistan, Paras now lives in Dubai and showcases her work at both ARTE markets in DFCM and TSC. She says, My two daughters, Areesh and Eshaal, are the inspiration behind Paras creations. It all started when I used to make cute and colourful accessories and skirts for them. In time, my work received appreciation from family and friends and I had the unique opportunity to take my hobby and transform it into a business.”
Paras is grateful to have a huge art and craft studio that accommodates her lace trimmings, upcycled cloth materials, tulle, Swarovski crystals and beads. There is a reason that you will see a lot of rosettes in her work. She says, “I love making, drawing, painting rosettes. I feel very happy creating every petal and joining them together when making fabric rosettes. It’s almost as if I come alive as I paint or create every unfurling petal.
Paras creations has been in business since six years now and ARTE has definitely helped the brand to unfurl creatively. ‘ARTE friends inspire me to improve my techniques and come up with new custom made designs every month. I appreciate all the feedback and advice that I receive. That’s a blessing.”
