Pure White Balloon Dress     Experience a Beauty Transformation Journey

Daisy Balloon was in charge of the design concept, production process and image photo taking of the white balloon dress in Japan that will be displayed in the lobby of VITA. The main concept of this pure white hand-made dress was "butterfly evolution", which also represents the beauty transformation of ladies. The photos capture the moment that the model turns from a chrysalis to bursting with butterflies, symbolizing how Harbour City takes all of us on a beauty transformation journey. 

Selected Past Work Photos   Reveal the Beauty of Ladies

On the other hand, Gateway Corridor of Harbour City will exhibit around 20 photos of selected past works of Daisy Balloon. The model in each photo is wearing a unique dress created from balloons of different colours and forms to reveal the different types of beauty of ladies.
