Set up my store as Zest demo

A guide to import Zest demo data onto your store
Zest includes 4 styles (Flairy, Gusto, Cosmo, and Fleek) that are great starting points to build your own site and will surely make any website shine out from the crowd.
The theme preset you receive either when trying the theme as a trial or uploading the theme file is the default preset. This default preset is 1 among the 4 demo styles.
If you want to import and set up your store as other demos, make sure your theme is not in the trial mode and follow the steps below.

After uploading the theme file to your Shopify store by following this help article, simply click on the links listed below to download the demo sample data that you want.
Sample data
In each sample data folder, you will see some files in .json format.
For example, in this zest-fleek file, you can find 3 major folders: 'templates', 'sections', and 'config'.
Opening the 'templates' folder, you will see the above .json files.
