Fashion Baubles

Assembil Blog: Fashion Baubles 2017. All decorations 1.

With the best of intentions, it seemed like a fun idea for Assembil to create some sort of tasteful, Scandinavian-style decorations. But then this quickly became overtaken by the idea of creating “fashion baubles” – decorations and baubles inspired by iconic designers and collections.

So, for this year the inspiration was Comme des Garçons and the work of Rei Kawakubo. This has resulted in some colourful, but slightly surreal baubles inspired by Kawakubo’s penchant for new silhouettes, bold colours and subverted “feminine” detailing.

So here are the finished baubles, with full instructions in the following posts.

Enjoy!

Ribbon Baubles

These ribbon baubles take the idea of wrapping baubles in ribbon and makes it somewhat more… relaxed and chaotic. Go wild with a hot glue gun and some left over ribbon, then add on some extra embellishment. Full instructions.
