ecoFAB Trash Couture 2014 - Melee is a dress made from a local poetry manifesto someone tossed my way. I sketched this dress when I had to think of yet another way to use my signature coils in a new dress for this year. I chose to minimize the use of the coils and use them as accents on a white background. I have a ton of paper at my studio and I originally thought of newspaper but the fact is that newsprint it quite drab and gray, so I was on the lookout of some print on cleaner paper, when out of nowhere someone gave me a handful of the Melee` poetry manifesto to recycle and it was EXACTLY what I was looking for ! The Universe is my ally, she knows what I need and inevitably and infallibly things find their way to me. Melee was perfect, I unstapled the pages and gathered each page and sewed them together. When the skirt was full I taped it with masking tape to the waist and added a second, longer layer underneath tat I cut into triangles and glued my coils. Then a third, gathered wrapping shipping paper that I bordered with thin masking tape to give it a trim look. The bust I gathered at breast plate to give it fullness for the breast, and added a trickle of coils for the splash of desired color. The shoulder straps are coils that I drilled holes to string and the crown was an old basket I started with my coils and paper pulp that I never completed. This dress is a gorgeous work of art.
