MASK MACRAMÉ

6th semester fashion jewellery & accessories (CSM London) – “On the body”

The aim for this project was the development of an accessories collection which can be inspired by or combined with the designed outfits of the lesson Fashion Design 1. In this regard, the ideas for the final objects should be determined mainly by 3D experiments on the body. The result of rather low proportion of new footage led to non-specialist processing and materials in this case.

The final headpieces exist independently of one another but through the colouration they get a connected overall impression. The mask consists of multiple cords and ropes that are connected by techniques of knotting and weaving. The mask gets laterally and at the end of each strand a spiny appearance by the use of tile crosses. By tearing a cardboard box in pieces and joining them together the “hat“ gets its fragile-looking surface structure.
