Designer’s statement:

“What was trash to one

by another may be treasured


I created a design

in an effort to make our environment better

A skirt and pants made of bags

splattered with black, and painted with gold

A corset made of wrapping paper

appliqued with magazines that were old

string laced through

soda can tabs and safety pins

to pull it together

and cinch it in

a choker made from a zipper

tied at the nape of her neck

What you can make with waste

you’d never expect”
