The aim of this project was to create unique garments from plastic bags, fashion labels, paper receipts, logos or fashion brands, price tags, tickets, fashion accessories etc... Display them in the natural environment in order to suggest change, invasion or conceptual destruction to the area. Each garment shows a small amount of items that are usually wasted after purchasing the fashion items.
“Fashion, by its very nature, is about in-built obsolescence. It's about waste. We fashion people revel in waste. We look disapprovingly at anyone wearing last season's boots. We want everything to be new, new, new. We want it before it is even in the shops. We are already shopping for winter, the spring before. We pride ourselves on being ahead of the game. We like nothing more than a nice, shiny (and yes, often plastic) carrier bag, full of new clothes (Blanchard, 2007: 2)”
