This project on the basis of the mythology of The Birth of Venus embodies the birth of a beautiful goddess out of seashells in a couture-like evening fashion design collection, focusing on the organic vitality and swirling motion of seashells. The spiral layered structure of shells predicts the birth of beauty revealing the dynamism of life swirling human bodies and feminine softness simultaneously. The idea of seashells, the swirling organic forms with a transparent water feeling is likely to provide a metaphor of the birth of a goddess stirring up nostalgia.
