The first event, Designers Choice is themed "Flowers on the Orient". Contestants will complete a design up to 1.2 metres deep and wide and 2.25 metres high within 2 hours.
On the same day they will have their artistic flair tested again with a "Surprise Item" which they will complete in just over an hour. This is an exciting test of how spontaneous these designers from around the world can be with only 15 minutes to view the various items presented to them and create something amazing.
Assignment 1: Flowers on the Orient
I have made a little forest with very big flowers. The stems are in iron while the top has thousands of small flowers. There is a fantastic oriental feeling in this object.
Oriental flowers are peony, roses, cherry blossom, lilies, tulips, orchids.....
I like these colours. And I like to work with lots of flowers. This is a classic style in a nice modern Scandinavian touch.
Assignment 2: Surprise item Shanghai Tang
Create within the time allowed an in store display for the famous Shanghai Tang Clothing and Accessories Store. Your design should reflect the vibrancy and contemporary ambience of this retail outlet. You do not have to use all of the materials provided, you may decide not to use some of the items at all.
I used a lot of flowers and colours. I like a romantic style where these colours stand out perfectly and look great in the shop.
