Return Of Gazir Pat

Gettng inspired by hundreds of years old Folk Motif (Pat Chitra) available in a few localilies like Faridpur, Mymensingh, and Manikganj. Respecting the creators and original artists she values Mr. Shambhu Achayrya (descendant of the Pat artists) and seeks his approval to transfer this art into fashion. She traveled to Wuhan, China, and showcased this folk Bengali culture in 2017.
Designer secured the “Excellence Award” from Wuhan International Fashion Week.

In bengali, “pot” means “scroll” and “potua” or “chitrakar” means “painter”. The origin of the painted scrolls is very ancient. From the eighth century onward , the narration of the story of gazi pir with the help of a gazir pat was a popular form of entertainment in rural areas, the narration of the story of gazi pir with the help of a gazir pat was a popular form of entertainment in rural areas.

“shambhu acharya” the family of potua, they are upholding this traditional ancient art now a days. Potuas used to show the pot with their melodious and religious singing to inform the message of islam within the common people of the country. Gazi is the title of the fighters of islam who win in the fighting. Gazi is the source of extraordinary power who can easily captivate any power of the world and for this there are a lots of picture queue are drawn in the pot and used described the folk society. In my design i am trying to reintroduce our famous folk art. As a fashion designer we should understand the visual arts in relation to history and cultures, so as a bangladeshi fashion designer i inspire by pot chitra by using line, color, texture, form, shape etc. From it. I think, if pot chitra can be made globalize mingled with fashion, the pot chitra will be considered as a new dimension for fashion in the world.
