As a designer who continuously experiments with materials and techniques, and channeling the competition brief of rethinking and coming up with ways of minimizing waste in the fashion industry, my designs were based on the concept of transformation or metamorphosis. To illustrate my idea of metamorphosis, I came up with three shoe designs with designs that mimics the patterns on a monarch butterfly’s wings. The patterns will be rendered using strips of leather which will be sewn on mesh surface with an assortment of beads attached to it. Just like a butterfly, I would like to show through my work, that a material should not limit ones ability to transform it into something wearable and functional.
