Rebirth of Athena

Rebirth of Athena is my triptych creation of Athena the recycled dress I created for the 2012 ecoFAB Trash Couture show. Once we have created the piece we show it at various events, promote our artistry and then try to create a piece of value and interest with it. The dress itself took me three months to create, coming up with the design is the tricky part. I knew I had to design a piece that would have to be worn by different models for the various shows, something that was going to be as comfortable and wearable as possible. Cutting the various pieces to assemble, paint and coil the bust, belt and various other attachments are nothing compared to dreaming the idea. The same applies to the art that has to come out of it. I have the pieces most of the time, it's the inspiration that eludes me. I have to stare at the pieces for a long time, then one day... in this case it only took me the better part of one year to have it come to me like in a dream. I love Rebirth of Athena, it's organic, it's sustainable, it's my purest form of recycling...
