Perler Beads High Fashion by Sabine Ducasse

This is my philosophy in trashion:
If you know and can do a craft/artisan technique, any technique, take it out of the original context and put it in a form and function of high fashion. Trashion is born.



"As DIY crafts go, perler beads are about as simple as they come — lay them out, sit an iron on top for a few seconds, and they’ll stick together. (We won’t say ‘easy’ because even perler beads are easy to screw up.) While our creativity was limited to ironing 2-D representations of our favorite cartoon characters, designer Sabine Ducasse’s Melting Pot collection wraps a wearable, iron-melted sheet of the little dots around a person. Ducasse’s retro style pops off her model, bending around the shoulders like a set of pixelated wings. Even the styling is retro, in an 8-bit, psychedelic way, but Ducasse’s throwback to old toys was modern enough to win her a scholarship at the International Fashion Academy. The contest’s “East Meets West” theme was perfect for the French-born, Shanghai-based designer, whose collection saw the hemispheres and the decades literally melt into each other."

  8. Any idea what technique would be used to arrange those beads into patterns and then create 3d shapes with them?

  9. My best guess would be to build the shape first from the beads spike base (pin board) in 3D and then iron/melt the beads onto that.
