A right-brainer by day and occasional blogger by night, you've landed on a place where I live and breathe all things art, design, culture and fashion. You'll find me documenting my life in the creative field, endless travels with friends and family and a bit of food.
Goodbye Zara boots, it’s time to morph you into a Zara bag. Here’s another post from my Jewellery design / Ideation for the Object class. It’s the only class I like blogging about this semester because we’re given weekly projects that are done in our 3 hour studios and in contrast to that, there isn’t a whole lot happening in my other subjects (only research and folio prep which I’ll post about later). For this shoe project we pretty much had to be surgeon-like and completely disassemble any shoe we had or buy one from a shop. This project came at the perfect time as I was about to throw away these 5 year old pair of Zara boots – the soles were already falling apart and so was the material! Deconstructing this thing was a pain in the butt! That means unpicking all seams, pulling apart metals and anything glued to each other. We then had to create a new object using every part from the shoe. Some people made jewellery out of their shoe but I chose to go with a bag. Using as little resources as possible I only used PVA glue and a stapler to form the construction. It’s not the most picturesque thing, fashion designers would probably be shaking their heads at the transformation but hey, for the sake of this project I tried!
