A current design project has introduced me to an unusual yet fun and exciting Upcycling process of making fashion/art pieces from industrial waste. The Bridal Cupture dress you see here has been made from around 200 Huhtamaki Bioware cups to be displayed at the Footprint Awards next month. More garments will be constructed - I will update in the run up to the event. I am collaborating with Zoe Fletcher for the awards project and we are both making garments for the awards exhibit.
