Degree Show Exhibition
2024

The Degree Show Exhibition 2024 at the Textile Institute of Pakistan concluded on June 5 and was a resounding success. This year’s exhibition highlighted the graduating batch’s innovative and culturally rich projects. Each project, from exploring the intricate beauty of Gujarati crafts to depicting the transformative journey of bread, reflected the student’s dedication to their craft and their deep connection to cultural heritage. The exhibition featured a diverse range of products, including sarees, decorative cushions, denim jackets, and more, with each piece uniquely telling its story through the skilled hands of our talented students.

Visitors were captivated by the array of techniques on display, such as embroidery, UV printing, and Shibori dyeing, applied to various materials and forms. The students masterfully combined traditional methods with contemporary design, creating visually stunning and thought-provoking pieces. The exhibition celebrated the culmination of years of hard work and creativity but also emphasised the importance of preserving cultural identities and fostering appreciation for artisanal crafts. The Degree Show Exhibition 2024 was a testament to the exceptional talent of the next generation of designers, leaving a lasting impression on all who attended.

The Degree Show Exhibition 2024 offers a captivating display of creativity and craftsmanship. One project, showcasing a set of grey ottomans, captivates viewers with their intricate patterned surfaces. The repeating motifs, reminiscent of traditional designs, add a touch of elegance and sophistication to the simple form of the Ottomans.  A small table, adorned with delicate fabric and adorned with various trinkets, completes the vignette, creating a cosy and inviting atmosphere. The hand-woven basket of natural-coloured materials showcased the student’s skills in fiber manipulation and construction. The basket’s shape and size suggest it could be used for a variety of purposes, from storing yarn to displaying decorative items.

The exhibition also features a striking chandelier, crafted from interwoven strands of coloured string, which takes centre stage, casting an ethereal glow. The delicate, intricate patterns of the chandelier are further enhanced by the warm light emanating from the bulb at its centre.  The gallery walls surrounding the chandelier are adorned with an array of framed pieces, showcasing a variety of weaving techniques and textures, from simple and minimalist to complex and intricate. This collection demonstrates the student’s mastery of various materials and their ability to transform their artistic visions into tangible forms, leaving a lasting impression on the viewers.

I owe a significant part of my professional success to my alma mater, the Textile Institute of Pakistan, where I earned my BSC Hons in Textile Sciences. The knowledge and skills I acquired during my time at TIP laid the foundation for my rapid career growth. The institute’s strong industry connections and emphasis on practical learning provided me with a unique edge in the job market.
Within a short span, I achieved a remarkable milestone by becoming the youngest General Manager of Marketing in the industry at just 28 years old. Today, as a Director of Marketing for the past five years, I continue to excel in my field, leveraging the expertise and confidence instilled in me by my education at TIP.
I am forever grateful to my alma mater for shaping my career trajectory and enabling me to reach new heights.

TIP is not just a university but a unique community that enabled me to walk on paths not previously taken, initiate new ventures, and drive change. It was at TIP that I found a nurturing environment filled with mentors who inspired me, peers who challenged me, and resources that empowered me. This support system was instrumental as I led organizations in C-level leadership roles at a very young age, gaining experiences that would have been unimaginable without the foundation laid by TIP. Eventually, this journey led to the founding of Fruit of Sustainability, Pakistan’s first tech company specializing in digital social and environmental due diligence SaaS platforms which is set to revolutionize the Textiles and Apparel Industry in Pakistan. The entire journey is deeply and profoundly attributed to TIP.

The time I spent at TIP campus had been the most important part of my career. It has given me confidence to achieve something that i used to believe as impossible. TIP has been a multicultural institute where I got the opportunity to engage with people of various cultural backgrounds from across Pakistan. We were valued, pampered and sculptured for the country’s textile industry. Due to the high quality of education and personal brought up I received at TIP, I am being valued today in the textile industry.

Entering the Textiles Institute of Pakistan back in ’05 kicked off my journey to where I am today. It wasn’t just about hitting the books; it was the whole vibe. The professors? They were like our industry sherpas, mixing theory with real-world stories that got us buzzing about business. They didn’t just teach; they inspired. And outside class? It was a hub of creativity and teamwork, where we bounced ideas off each other and dreamed big. The institute didn’t just give me skills; it lit a fire in me to tackle anything that came my way. So, yeah, big shoutout to my alma mater for shaping me into the entrepreneur I’ve become.
