Yasintha’s final creation was named “Transformed Beauty”.

The bra and the brief were made mostly out of coconut based material. The bra cups were made out of transformed coconut shells and the bra straps were made out of coconut bristle using an ancient weaving technique.

The coconut shell cups were carved with traditional Sri Lankan flower motifs and the carvings were further inside to highlight the engraved effect.
