Butterfly

Butterfly | Shenzhen American International School

Maria Reyes Peralta (grade 5)

Are villains just born bad? Maria’s piece is built around a villainous character she created. As with most villains, Maria feels her character is misunderstood, so she tries to be better understood by absorbing and controlling people’s emotions through her butterflies. In Maria’s entirely hand-crafted piece, her garment is the home to her villain’s butterflies with the ability to launch off the dress. With mentorship from M5Stack’s engineering team and tools, Maria created a series of servo motors connected into a circuit to launch rubber band wind-up butterflies. A seasoned maker and designer, Maria’s butterfly launchers made it on the professional runway at 2018 Shenzhen Fashion Tech Expo.

 蝴蝶 | 深美国际学校

Maria Reyes Peralta (五年级)

坏人天生就坏吗?Maria的作品围绕着她创造的一个邪恶的角色展开。和大多数反派一样,Maria觉得她的角色被误解了,所以她试图通过她的蝴蝶来吸收和控制人们的情绪,从而更好地理解别人。在Maria完全手工创作的作品中,她的服装是她的反派蝴蝶的家,能从服装上飞出去。在M5Stack的工程团队和工具的指导下,Maria创造了一系列伺服电机连接到一个电路,以发射橡皮筋缠绕蝴蝶。作为一名经验丰富的创客和设计师,Maria的蝴蝶发射器在2018年深圳时装科技博览会的专业走秀上展示给公众。

Hey Janelle Monae! We did it better! Inspired by American Singer Janelle Monae’s 2019 Grammy dress, this trio recreated it with broken rulers, a tossed-out backpack, used bubble wrap and plastic bags. From the hat to the dress, much consideration was given in choosing the lighting to illuminate the ensemble. This team wants the world to know beautiful things can be made out of repurposed trash. Don’t know where to start? Get inspired by someone online!

The Myth

The Myth | Gracjana Siewert

Gracjana Siewert, age 16.

A MakeFashion Edu veteran, Grace wanted to derive her inspiration for her piece the opposite of her work last season: “This year on my inspiration derives from something opposite of last year. Last year my creation was very cute, pink and it included a lot of pink LEDs. This time my project will be dark, mixed with frustration and sadness.”

Inspired by the complex emotions involved in the the mythological Medusa, Grace weaves design and tech to bring forth feelings of despair and betrayal. In Roman mythology, Medusa was not always a monster. She was a young girl that was a devoted priestess of the goddess Athena. Athena, was always jealous of her beauty, especially Medusa’s long beautiful hair. Medusa’s beauty was so great that it garnered the unwanted attention of Poseidon. Athena, unable to contain her jealously turned Medusa into a monster and abandoned her. Utilizing her ever-advancing tech skills, Grace will conceive Pegasus, Medusa’s child, through projection and hologram on the runway.

神话 | Gracjana Siewert

Gracjana Siewert, 16岁

作为MakeFashion Edu的老将,Grace想要从她的作品中获得灵感,这与她上一季的作品相反:“今年我的灵感与去年相反。 去年我的作品非常可爱,粉红色,还包括很多粉红色LED。 这次我的项目将处于黑暗的情绪中,充满了沮丧和悲伤。

灵感来自神话般的美杜莎所涉及的复杂情感,Grace融合设计和技术,带来绝望和背叛的感觉。在罗马神话中,美杜莎并不总是一个怪物。她是一个年轻女孩,是女神雅典娜的忠实女祭司。雅典娜一直嫉妒她的外表,特别是她漂亮的头发。美杜莎的美丽是如此之大,以至于它吸引了波塞冬的不必要的注意力。雅典娜无法控制她,嫉妒地将美杜莎变成了一个怪物并抛弃了她。Grace利用她不断进步的技术技能,将通过投影和全息图在跑道上构思美杜莎的孩子,飞马。

Mood Dress Pro

Mood Dress Pro | ELECFREAKS

Shuyu Bai (9)

At last year’s STEAM Runway event, we created version 1.0 of the mood dress, which was relatively simple to interact with due to technical limitations. This year, we want to upgrade the dress, add more interactive effects, and achieve cooler visual effects. What remains the same is the meaning of this dress so that every girl can dance with confidence.

Dual Emotions

MG Space | Dual Emotions

Kiki Ye (13 years old)

Inspired by the tragedy masks from Chinese theatre that show two emotions- Kiki explored the concept more deeply to understand specific ideas or concepts attached to happiness and sadness. “I want to the changes in emotions in my dress. It’s a little hard to put into words, but I used a design board to help me work through what I mean by happiness and sadness.”

The dress itself is several levels, from white to black, showing how a person would move from one emotion to the other, depending on where they are in life.

 MG Space | 双重情绪

Kiki Ye 叶瑞麒

受中国戏剧悲剧面具表现出两种情感的启发,Kiki对这一概念进行了更深入的探索,以理解与快乐和悲伤相关的具体想法或概念。“我想要改变我的穿着。这很难用语言来表达,但是我用了一个设计板来帮助我理解我所说的快乐和悲伤。”

礼服本身有几个层次,从白色到黑色,展示了一个人如何从一种情绪转移到另一种情绪,这取决于他们在生活中的位置。
