Design Description

We were inspired to use waste plastic left over from our new school. Our style inspiration comes from Iris Van Herpen. The dress includes plastic window film, scrap wire, black tape, motor, scrap silage wrap, old zipper and recycled heels. The process includes melting the plastic, wrapping and outlining wires with the plastic, shaping wires, sewing the pieces to the dress, shoes and headpiece and including a motor. We want to promote recycling plastic wastage as we want to
minimize the amount being dumped in our oceans. Our makeup reflects the beauty that’s being destroyed by this process.
