The final assignment in my 3D 'Body as Form' class was to create an outfit using only recycled materials. Having worked with Records on a smaller scale (bowls and pencil holders) I wanted to give them a try. After trial and error in the workshop, with a heat gun, I ended up creating a strapless bodice out of 4 large records that snaps closed. The elastic waist skirt made from ironed black trash bags, mimics the ruffle of the 45s on the trim. The record look was received well and my peers also had some pretty unique solutions! See below for my process and a peek into our crit today.
