This is a project done by Zhenqi and I.  Before anything else, this is both of our Mnemosyne’s prototype:

Our idea on Garden of Eden?

These are the main characteristics that define the Garden of Eden:

  • Etheral 
  • Magical
  • Delicate

 

Based on our previous prototypes, as well as the overarching theme, we worked towards creating our final 4 statements of accessories.

Our Colour Scheme :

  • SILVER
  • BLUE
  • GOLD
  • TRANSPARENT (Plastic)

 

1. THE HEADBAND

Incorporating the design concept from my previous prototype, we re-created a headpiece and injected the “ETHEREAL” element into it. By using slightly more exaggerated differences in the length of plastic and the involvement of dried scented flowers that smells like fresh morning spring.

2. EAR CUFF

Our initial idea was to make use of melted plastic as the foundation of the cuff. However, we realised that the metal wires were just as handy and malleable! Hence, we tweaked the wires in several different directions so that it forms a nice flowing arch when placed on the ear of the wearer. In the later part of the development, we stuck on dried flowers into the loops so that we can keep the overall theme in check.

3. BROOCH

This is a fashion accessory that is to be pinned on the chest of the wearer. In this scenario, the wearer will be wearing a “white robe” (or rather curtains lol). This piece is made from melted strips of plastics alongside metal wires at the stem of the product. If you observe closely, the flower on the inside of the metal wires is dangling on a thread. This is adapted from our previous prototype, where the central piece appears to be hanging on a piece of wire.

4. THE BELT

This is the concluding piece of our accessories collection hehe. We wanted to come up with a comprehensive set of apparel, so hence we made a belt too! This will hold the white robe in place together, all in all creating a more aesthetic and put together look for our wearer. We coiled the wires repeatedly and adorned it with more blue/gold/silver flowers! It looked so cute!
