About my design:

Continuing my exploration into the use of recycled material for fashion, this dress employs used water bottle caps as embellishment. The entire line is based on taking something ordinarily thrown away and transforming it into something extraordinary through the medium of fashion. This dress is no exception.

The idea came from studying such designers as Alexander McQueen and Manish Arora. Using my education in architecture to construct a dress made of recycled materials proved to be a direct parallel to practices I had developed in school. Drilling holes into the bottle caps and then hand sewing them onto the dress was just as tedious as producing a model for a studio class. This technique produces an ethereal effect on the garment which transforms the ordinary object into something unexpected in fashion.
