cushions, and pillow covers.

a similar shade. Pastel colors are also often used. The craftsmen use
shades that blend with the background. Thread colors are inspired by local
flowers. Only one or two stitches are employed on one fabric.

Kashmiri stitches

The stitches include sozni, zalakdozi and vata chikan. Other
styles include dorukha in which the motif appears on both sides of the shawl with
each side having a different color; papier-mâché; aari embroidery; shaaldaar samovar (the antique

Fashion merchandising is a broad term. So, what does a
fashion merchandiser do? Typically a fashion merchandiser will have several
potential areas of focus and is used to juggling different responsibilities. As
the name implies, the role of a fashion merchandiser combines fashion and
merchandising, and requires a strong sense of style and fashion in addition to
business acumen. What does a fashion merchandiser do on a day-to-day basis?
Here are a few key responsibilities of a fashion merchandiser.

To successfully manage the profitability of a retail store
you have to be in tune with fashion trends to know what will sell. Fashion
merchandisers are able to blend fashion sense with quantitative analysis to
look at how products have performed in the past and forecast consumer demand
for coming seasons.

This is primarily where fashion and merchandising aspects
come together. Knowledge of fashion and trend analysis is used to decide how to
stock retail stores. This includes which new styles to order, which items to
reorder, quantity of items, and the colors and sizes to stock. The fashion
merchandiser works within a budget and has to make sure stores can be properly
stocked within that budget. Part of this process is buying and negotiating with
manufacturers and designers to make sure items can be priced in a way that will
sell and make a profit. If responsible for multiple retail stores, fashion
merchandisers also need to determine how each store should be stocked since
different stores likely have a different surrounding clientele with different
tastes.

Geometric design is a branch of computational geometry. It
deals with the construction and representation of free-form curves, surfaces,
or volumes and is closely related to geometric modeling. Core
problems are curve and surface modelling and
representation. GD studies especially the construction and manipulation
of curves and surfaces given by a set of points using polynomial, rational,
piecewise polynomial, or piecewise rational methods. The most important
instruments here are parametric curves and parametric surfaces, such
as curves, spline and surfaces. An important
non-parametric approach is the level set method.

Application areas include shipbuilding, aircraft,
and automotive industries, as
well as architectural design. The
modern ubiquity and power of computers means that even perfume bottles and
shampoo dispensers are designed using techniques unheard of by shipbuilders of
1960s.

Geometric models can be built for objects of any dimension in
any geometric space.
Both 2D and 3D geometric models are
extensively used in computer graphics. 2D models are
important in computer typography and technical drawing. 3D models are
central to aided design and manufacturing, and
many applied technical fields such as geology and medical
image processing
.

They are also contrasted with digital images and volumetric and mathematical models such as the zero set of an arbitrary polynomial. However, the distinction is often blurred: for instance,
geometric shapes can be represented by objects; a digital image can be interpreted as a collection of geometric shapes such as circles are defined by implicit mathematical equations. the
modeling of fractal objects often requires a combination of geometric and
procedural techniques.

Animal print is a clothing and fashion style in which the garment is
made to resemble the pattern of the skin and fur of an animal such as a leopard, cheetah, zebra striped
hyena
. African wild dog, giraffe or monkey. Animal print is
also used for room decoration, handbags and footwear and even some jewelry. A major difference
between animal prints and fur
clothing
is that animal prints today very often use fake
fur
instead of animal coat.

Animal prints have long
been a popular style for many reasons. For one, they are generally expensive
and considered rather exotic; hence they are a symbol of wealth and status. Throughout
history, kings and other high people have used animal print rugs and such as a
sign of status just as mounted animals are kept as trophies. Animal print became popular for women in the United States
in the late 1960s during the Bohemian
movement
.

Besides a distinctive natural animal pattern on clothing,
“animal prints” may also refer to art prints of animals, printed on
canvas or paper. The art prints may replicate the same skin or fur pattern
found on the animal, but a flat photographic representation printed on artistic
media, such as for as wall decorations. The prints are not limited to just the
animal’s skin or fur pattern, but may be any part of the animal and still be
called an animal print.

Other
companies like Kate Spade New York have
begun incorporating the animal print design into accessories such as iPad hard
cases and folios.

Bandhani is a type of tie-dye textile decorated by
plucking the cloth with the fingernails into many tiny bindings that form a
figurative design. The term bandhani is derived from the Sanskrit verbal root bandh. Bandhini making
centers are situated in Gujarat, Rajasthan, Sindh, Punjab
region
and in Tamil Nadu where it is known as Sungudi. Earliest evidence of Bandhani dates back to Indus
Valley Civilization
where dyeing was done as early as 4000 B.C. The
earliest example of the most pervasive type of Bandhani dots can be seen in the 6th century paintings depicting the
life of Buddha found on the wall of Cave 1 at Ajanta. Bandhani is
also known as Bandhej Saree and Chungidi in
Tamil and regional dialects. Other tying techniques include Mothra, Ekdali and
Shikari depending on the manner in which the cloth is tied. The final products
are known with various names including Patori and Chandrokhani. Bandhani
is one of the most recognizable Indian prints. Having been around since the
time of the Indus Valley Civilization, the term bandhani comes from the
Sanskrit word ‘Bandha’ which means ‘to tie’. The textile is decorated by
plucking the cloth with the fingernails into many tiny bindings that form a
figurative design. It features patterns like dots, stripes, waves or squares
formed by first tying small portions of the fabric at intervals with continuous
thread to form interesting patterns, and then dyeing it. The most popular
bandhni making centres are in Gujarat, Rajasthan, and in Tamil Nadu where it’s
known as Sungudi

Cotton is a soft, fluffy staple fiber that grows in a boll,
or protective case, around the seeds of the cotton plants of the genus Gossypiumin the mallow family Malvaceae.
The fiber is almost pure cellulose. Under natural conditions, the cotton bolls will increase
the dispersal of the seeds.

The plant is a shrub native to tropical and subtropical regions around
the world, including the Americas, Africa, Egypt and India. The greatest
diversity of wild cotton species is found in Mexico, followed by Australia and
Africa. Cotton was independently domesticated in the Old and New Worlds.

The fiber is most often spun
into yarn or thread and used to make a soft, breathable textile. The use of cotton for fabric is known to date to
prehistoric times; fragments of cotton fabric dated to the fifth millennium BC
have been found in the Indus Valley Civilization. Although cultivated since antiquity, it was the
invention of the cotton gin that lowered the cost of
production that led to its widespread use, and it is the most widely used natural fiber cloth in clothing today.

Current estimates for world
production are about 25 million tonnes or 110 million
bales annually, accounting for 2.5% of the world’s arable land. China is the
world’s largest producer of cotton, but most of this is used domestically. The
United States has been the largest exporter for many years. In the United
States, cotton is usually measured in bales, which measure approximately 0.48
cubic meters (17 cubic feet) and weigh 226.8 kilograms (500 pounds).
