WINTER GARDEN

Winter Garden Project was designed for presentation at the AW13 Paris Fashion Week as part of a collaboration with China based fashion designer MashaMa. Ma - who had stints at Alexander McQueen and Veronique Branquinho during her studies at Central Saint Martin’s - presented her graduation show at London Fashion Week where it was snapped up by fashionable select store - B store. She is known for her feminine, modern and elegant silhouettes, a use of rich materials and the colour white. Ma invited the Slovenian design duo to participate in the presentation of her new Autumn-Winter 2013 collection at her fashion show in Paris.

PRODUCT

Inspired by the poetry of Pablo Neruda (Winter Garden), earrings in the form of organic, realistic flower motifs were frozen in the ice. Elements such as icy roses, snow drops, twigs and leafs were connected to create a flowing earring. Produced using the relatively untapped resource of 3-D printing, the lightweight material (polyamide) means earrings hang effortlessly, mapping natural shadows across the face.

Jewellery was crafted by 3D printing on a Pro60 machine with the technique of   selective laser sintering, in collaboration with Ortotip. The material used is polyamide powder. The process ensures the production of functional product with high mechanical and thermal resistance, without losing any of the beauty of the design.
















olgafacesrok have been behind several high-profile projects including  the exhibition "Inside Out" in the gallery Squat and others in Berlin, a collaboration with menswear brand Wooyoungmi, and various fashion editorials.
