Swarovski x CSM student project

The urge to decorate one’s body with natural materials is what I saw in Alexander McQueen’s idea of Savage Beauty. I set out to turn my seashell collection into a body adornment. Drawing on elements from ancient Roman hairstyles and tribal adornments, a wig-like headpiece set with Swarovski gemstones is a celebration of collecting and decorating.
