First Fashion Project

Freshers week has just ended, and on the last day we were put into groups and challenged to create a look from recycled materials. We were supplied with bin bags, newspapers and old scrap materials. We decided on the theme glam vamp, and our design ended up like a vampire bride...

We constructed the skirt from folded newspapers, which were burned at the end, we then poured black paint over the top of the skirt which dripped down the folds. The cobweb looking material was created by pulling apart a stretchy netted fabric. To hold everything together we had to resort to using staples, not exactly a good example craftsmanship, but the important thing is it stayed on down the runway.
