Tallinn Design Festival: "Skins&Shells"

Authors: EKA + HK PolyU

Tutors: Liisi Eesmaa, Piret Puppart, Basia Szkutnicka

Skins&Shells is an international collaborative project between the Masters of Fashion degree students of the Estonian Academy of Arts and Hong Kong Polytechnic University. 1600 Chinese wooden fans, iconic to Asia, were used as a medium to reflect the meaning of "protective membranes" surrounding the existence of life. The outcome resulted in 11 individual statement pieces, each with a narrative, transforming the human silhouette...delicate, dramatic, more than skin-deep.
