Tethis - 2018 ecoFAB Trashion piece

4,200.00

Tethis is the black and white version of Morning Coffee, the collaboration I did with Marynel Watters in 2016. I had this idea in mind when I started working on Caffeine Addiction for the negative side of the nespresso pods is so interesting to me. I started by sewing the flattened aluminum pods to a piece of recycled mosquito netting, the piece wasn’t wide enough to close all the way in the back and I had to add the bustle to cover the rest. I was thinking of how was I going to get my hands on some more netting when I stumbled upon a whole lot of it on the side of the road. One of my neighbors had her sun room redone for some crazy reason, I say crazy reason for once I washed the netting there was nothing, absolutely nothing wrong with it. Just a ton of pollen… I took it home with me, washed it, and made the bustle for the skirt! I added some flattened aluminum expresso pods to tie the whole thing in and called it a day. The halter top ties in the nespresso skirt to my signature coil work made with recycled magazine paper coils, used cord, scrapped canvas pieces and the head piece is made with a salvaged lampshade.
