This word came into Latin from the Greek Elision. In classical mythology, Elysium, or the Elysian fields, was the home of the blessed after death, the final resting place of the souls of the heroic and the pure. Elysium: an ultimate state of happiness and perfection. I feel no matter how developed and how technologically advanced the world gets, at the basis of it all was nature – and perhaps it is why in the world today we see a return to using naturally sourced products and sustainable fabrics. We can’t forget our foundations, and Elysium gives you the vision that you are back in a Nature Wonderland and that’s where everyone’s soul, at the end of the day, thrives to be, that’s a place where Nature brings you happiness. It’s a heavenly feeling. In religion, Paradise is a place of exceptional happiness and delight. Often compared to the miseries of human civilization: in paradise there is only peace, prosperity, and happiness. Paradise is often described as a ‘higher place’, the holiest place, in contrast to this world, or underworlds such as Hell.

There are some designers who have worked on this theme, with the same taste of interest. their work is an inspiration from foundation of nature and creation of the non-existence. Guo Pei has entirely worked on theme “Elysium“. She don’t feel boundaries when putting a piece together intact her most of collections such as “Beyond”, “Garden of souls” are inspired by the nature, fantasy, wonderland and the foundation of nature. And promotes common scenario but in way different perspectives. These unique and wonderful turnovers within one theme and particular inspiration makes her every collection phenomenal and worth it. Moreover “Fendi “by Karl Lagerfeld collection ‘Flowers from other world”. Otherworldly in the fantastical sense; there are no blue poppies in real life, but in his imagination. The creation of the non-existence inspires a lot. Apart from this the working that occurs in the natural state, manually assembled pieces of couture etc. One of the main inspirations is The Paradise Cave – the breathtaking, magnificent and magical structured cave. Paradise Cave in Vietnam speaks to its name – this” underground paradise” is one of the wonders of the magnificent and magical world. All of formations here look like works of art; some are so dramatic. It is eventually hard to believe that they are creations of the nature. Paradise Cave owns a breathtaking, magnificent and magical structure that discoverers easily think about a heaven palace on earth. In particular, the system of stalagmites and stalactites here retains a shimmering, fanciful beauty beyond the imagination of human. Interestingly, the subtle and magnificent beauty of the cave is gradually revealed when light shines on numerous magic stalactites. one of the things that resembles it to the features of paradise is firstly of course its name and secondly that it has beaches, a river, jungle, even clouds. (Sunlight gets in through spots where the roof collapsed thousands of years ago). All of this under one roof this is an exceptional case where one can find different forms of nature in one place sharing one roof and are internally connected, and the connections are so merged it seems to be one place, it gives such an unusual sight stunning the viewer with the magnificence and making possible; the impossible thing which is beyond a human sight and mind. One cannot think of seeing all of it together but nature owns its paradise.

”Paradise Lost” is an epic poem in blank verse by the 17th-century English poet John Milton (1608–1674). The first version, published in 1667. A second edition followed in 1674, it is considered by critics to be Milton’s major work. “Paradise Regained” is connected by name to his earlier and more famous epic poem Paradise Lost, with which it shares similar theological themes. Elysium references in classical literature are as following; in poet Homer’s, “Odyssey”, Elysium is described as a paradise. The Greek oral poet Hesiod refers to the “Isles of the Blessed” (island of the blesses) in his didactic poem “Works and Days”. Poet Pindar’s “Odes” describes the reward waiting for those living a righteous life. In poet Virgil’s “Aeneid”, “Aeneas”, like “Heracles “and “Odysseus” before him. Virgil describes those who will travel to Elysium. In the Greek historian Plutarch’s “Life of Sertorius”, Elysium is described wonderfully. In post classical literature it is referenced from, Dante’s epic “The Divine Comedy”, Elysium is mentioned as the abode of the blessed. In Paris, the Champs-Élysées retain their name of the Elysian Fields, first applied in the late 16th century to a formerly rural outlier beyond the formal parterre gardens behind the royal French palace of the Tuileries. The term and concept of Elysium has had influence in modern popular culture; references to Elysium can be found in literature, art, film, and music. Examples include the “New Orleans” neighborhood of Elysian Fields in Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire. New Orleans’ Elysian Fields also provides the second-act setting of Elmer Rice’s The Adding Machine and the musical adaptation adding Machine (musical). In his poem ‘Middlesex’, John Betjeman describes how a few hedges ‘Keep alive our lost Elysium – rural Middlesex again’. In his poem “An Old Haunt”, Hugh McFadden sets an Elysian scene in Dublin’s St. Stephen’s Green Park ‘Very slowly solitude slips round me in St. Stephen’s Green. I rest: see pale salmon clouds blossom. I’m back in the fields of Elysium”. In spring and All, William Carlos Williams describes a dying woman’s ‘elysian slobber/upon/the folded handkerchief’.

This theme Elysium relates to anyone who dreams of it. I want to dedicate a heavenly fantasy, where everyone can dream, and my hope that every soul freely embraces beauty, understands the meaning of life, and ultimately finds the root of life and its own soul. The Paradise, Heaven; everybody has been dreaming of, something that has not been seen till yet but heard of ever since, what if that is visually represented, a part, scene, form or a glimpse of paradise is displayed this will develop a curiosity and would turn out to be phenomenal. As a whole it shows no matter what more this world turns out to be, the foundation will remain same.
