Architecture for the Body

  • Architecture for the Body
    An Exploration of Recycled Materials
  • Inspired by the different opacities of plastics, this dress is created completely out of clear, recycled acetate box covers which were either left exposed or wrapped in recycled plastic shopping bags. The resulting piece strives to covey a clean, structured silhouette that considers the architecture of the body.
     
    The piece was juried into the RISD Collection 2013 fashion show by a panel of critics from the industry.
