2014 CIARA DRESS
Model: Ciara Northen
Photographer: Brittany Reis
Hair and Makeup: Lanea Snow
Winner of the 2014 Conscious Designer's competition, this piece, inspired by the mahi mahi, is made entirely out of recycled soda cans.
(Left) The inspiration for the dress: The Mahimahi
(Below) The first batch of soda cans lined up before cutting. I used regular scissors and used a stencil to cut 2 "scales" from each can.
300 soda cans were cut then sewn onto a fabric base.
