So last semester Jay McCarol of Project Runway came to my school for a Q and A session. In honor of his visit the University Program Board put together a trashion show. (Clothes made out of trash or reused items.)

Here is my dress!! Big thanks to my friend for modeling it!


Here we are together


And here we are with Jay McCarol!


From the top down:

The headband is bicycle inner tube with a yoyo made of tablecloth.

The straps on the top were made from bicycle innner tubes, the bodice was made of seatbelts, the boobs were vinyl records and raffia placemats.

The bottom is made of a second hand table cloth, duct tape and the black part sticking out the bottom is crocheted vhs tape.

Even the shoes were bought from a second hand store and painted.

Comments and criticism always welcome!

That's so cool...I've wanted to be a part of a trashion show since I first heard of them a few years ago. You did a fantastic job Cheesy I bet yours was the most unique, pulling so many great materials and crafting methods together. Good for you, the dress looks fantastic!
