China Textile: What are the design highlights of this entry? What is the design concept?
Porramace Ponglarpprasert: Reevaluate recycle stuff transformation to brusedful cloth and have fashion style.
My inspiration is from the Birth of Venus, a goddess of love, beauty, sexuality and fertility. Venus was formed out of the foam of the sea and rode a seashell to land.
The new interpretation of the “Darkside of The Birth of Venus” describes that human have destroyed the Earth including the deep sea. Human pollution affects the oceans. In the ocean, there are high concentration of plastic trash which apparently cause damages for the animals in the ocean. The goddess, Venus, was known as beauty and purity. She will demand justice from humans.
The fabric for this design is from the discarded plastic from the ocean waste to polyester textile. The recycled polyester fabric weaved with the plastic beads. The plastic beads represents the corals, sea flowers and rocks under the oceans. For this design, the techniques that used on black polyester fabric are tucks and hand embroidery.
