Trash(y) Couture

Trash Couture, what's not to love?
Plastic dinnerware & aluminum

On Green Eco Services I came across artist John Petrey whom made the fantastic dresses shown here out of recycled cast-offs.  I've been wildly enamored of trash converting art since my BFA days, but you really must see Mr. Petrey's work - The Dress Series is a standout in any medium.  Contemplating the use of vintage signage and roofing composite materials as female adornment is an engaging exercise. 

In person I would be very hard pressed not to defy the cardinal  rule of "don't touch the art", wouldn't you?

Bottle caps & cards
