This study comes within the framework of a PhD course in Design, which is the continuation of a Masters Degree research in Fashion Design, searching for wardrobe technology and innovation through material behaviour. The intent of this project is to present solutions that promote a new and versatile product allowing for a different kind of aesthetic. This will be achieved through different materials with different behaviours that when put together create an innovative technology thus creating a new practice of body art, through the use of fashionable beachwear created with this technology. This technology allows the transformation of the suntan marks left by female swimwear. This will result in the creation of designs and drawings on the body, using shapes inspired by the Oriental Zodiac Signs, as well as colours drawn from the five elements of Feng Shui, which are also present in the Western Astrological Signs.
