Primavera - ecoFAB Trash Couture 2012

2,200.00

I made four dresses for this event, the competition is fierce and the creations are stunning. This is the fourth of my four dresses, "Primavera" 

Primavera is made in two pieces, the bakless top has straps that go over the shoulders and tie in the back to the waist this piece is made of recycled cardboard egg crate lids and the flowers are the cutouts of the bottom part of same crates. I have glued recycled text book paper to give it strength because of the nature of the egg crate it isn't very flexible. I also embellished it with strings of beads from broken jewelry, rhinestones for bling effect and any of my signature coils.

the skirt is made with a recycled paper that seems to have a top layer that looks much like grass weave we use for wall paper, this was used to protect the vinyl that we ordered. and was being scrapped. I glued an egg carton waist and the skirt ties at the waist on the sides and you slip into it from the top.

the head piece is made from the same.

Primavera, took a very long time to make because I had to cut out the thousand flowers and make the thousands of coils to use inside each of the flowers. it came out  beautiful and obviously functional as you can see the model wore it with ease and fluidity and it is amazingly sturdy. This event has been so exciting that my group of friends and I will be returning every year and try, best we can to outdo ourselves. Follow us on www.passportforfashion.com to see when are the next shows. 

I welcome commission work, if you like this design or if you want a different look, let me know, I'll make one just for you! All I need is 6 weeks time to make it.
