WASTE OR TREASURE
This project is to research an existing design icon and create a scale model replica. And later for instance by taking the idea, the form, the method of working, as a starting point for a personal project.
For the iron, I choose the wedding dress made of unwoven fabric by Rei Kawakubo in 1990. I love the idea of using this interior material to make the most important dress for every girl, an unusual fabric but still keeps the romantic feeling for this special purpose.
To continue with this idea, I use a daily abandoned material: plastic bag and give it another meaning, I think about in the history the sleeves, different kinds of sleeves represent different social classes. For example, Queen Elizabeth is a big fan of legs of mutton especially with pearls on it. And I design a top constructed of different kinds of sleeves which can give difference silhouettes.
