Olimpia - 2013 ecoFAB

5,000.00

OLYMPIA, my top creation for our annual ecoFAB Trash Couture show for 2013. Inspired by my previous works and the worlds greatest ecodesigner Alexander McQueen. This "warrior like" wearable trashion is my strong piece for our 2013 show for which I created 5 trashion pieces.  

The intention for my Trashion Pieces is to be used as an amazing window display for a boutique. These pieces are an eye catcher, a crowd pleaser, something to be proud to display in your window. 

Olympia is one of my top go to designs when I have a solo Deja Vu show. She is a two piece wearable Trashion with one "accessory" this whole outfit took the better part of six months mo make, I started with coiling the colorful magazine paper and sewing it in a fish scale patter idea. Once the front part came together I had the idea of the straps made from open hole coils to be woven with cotton yarn and then counter balance the weight of the front with a strap of coils in the back that tie to the back at the chest; much like a bra. Once the top was made it took me a while to come up with the idea of the skirt made out of tubes made from recycled magazine pages. I then spent a good time rolling paper to the length desired and strung those together and then I had to hook them to the coiled belt so it would sit on a models hips. the skirt ties in the back and because there is a gap where you tie I added an over skirt to the back to cover the whole body. Once the skirt was finished it looked a bit plain... I sat with it a while before I had the brilliant idea to make some small cone shapes to add to the bottom of each tube, which completed the outfit in the most spectacular way! 

Since the dress inspired some sort of warrior I decided at the last minute to create the shinguards like most warriors would have... This is one amazing Trashion wearable (not functional) piece!!!
