Abstract or Summary of Project

Enigma is the designing of a set exhibition posing as a retail display store, with a series of ‘exquisite’ fashion objects to mock the system of fashion – imitation and differentiation.

  • The body of object is altered to inject new content, where it mimics the fashion system of imitation while differentiating itself. Hence, the stylistic yet non-functional objects reflect the superficiality of the fashion system, metaphorically.
  • The objects ‘priced’ as high-end fashion goods are subjective to audience’s taste.

Inspired by Memphis group for its wonderful way of speaking functionality, the retail display is conceptualised to imitate the over-produced and overdesigned execution.

A little fake and with style outweighing substance.
