Plastic bags were collected, folded (above) and then fused using an iron (below).
For the final design, the colour scheme was extremely specific and only specific shades of colours were used when creating and arranging the garment.
Plastic modules were hand cut individually and arranged according to size and types of cuts used (slanted slits, even slits (on each module)). During arrangement of colours , pattern and design of the garment was slowly experimented on and evolving.
Plastic foam fruit protectors were used to support the areas of the dress below the waist (due to the weight, modules above the waistline had a difficult time retaining it’s shape and strength).
(Above) Due to the weight, the dress was warping and quite unstable therefore a tutu was created and to be added on.
Creation of tutu using unfazed plastic bin liners knotted and joined together on a piece of cloth.
Dress was stripped from the manikin and strips of fusible interlocking cloth was glued on to make the base sturdier (the bust area had already been glued and secured together while on the manikin).
The final design of the garment (before trimming of the tutu).
