This is a project I did during my 2nd year of University. To fit into the catagory of ‘Contemporary Art’ I made dresses from recycable materials suchas:
Newspaper, Bin Bags, Train Tickets, Sweet Wrappers, Board games, Playing Cards etc. It was a really fun – yet tiering – project to do! Nevertheless it was a success.
I had never ever made a dress in my life and all of a sudden I felt the need to make clothes! I am like any other young woman who has a passion for clothing! I buy and buy all the time so I realised it was my turn to create some one off pieces of clothing!
I asked a girl who I didn’t know to model for me and she was brilliant! we really got along and she was such a pleasure to work with! Definately a natural! I was really pleased with how the dresses looked on the model.
I did two photography shoots – I also took the photographs! I hope you enjoy my work!
