“As DIY crafts go, perler beads are about as simple as they come — lay them out, sit an iron on top for a few seconds, and they’ll stick together. [… D]esigner Sabine Ducasse’s Melting Pot collection wraps a wearable, iron-melted sheet of the little dots around a person.
Ducasse’s retro style pops off her model, bending around the shoulders like a set of pixelated wings. Even the styling is retro, in an 8-bit, psychedelic way, but Ducasse’s throwback to old toys was modern enough to win her a scholarship at the International Fashion Academy.
The contest’s “East Meets West” theme was perfect for the French-born, Shanghai-based designer, whose collection saw the hemispheres and the decades literally [sic] melt into each other.” (wired)
