Working with tissue, Jassal says, was an alternate and interesting experience from sewing with fabric.
“You don’t have to worry about how you’re sewing on the machine with fabric, though with bathroom tissue it will tear by like a needle or if it’s hanging close something it can get on,” she said.
Particularly with regards to Indian outlines that are typically heavier than other designs, Jassal says she had to be very careful when using tissue in her designs.
To date, Jassal has created seven collections ranging from bridal to evening and ready-wear pieces. Brampton designer, Mani Jassal, opened her store in Yorkville, Toronto and has dressed celebrities like Ashanti and Rupi Kaur.
