Project details

Overview

The plastic dress highlights the idea of reducing and preventing plastic from ending up in landfill as it is entirely created out of multiple plastics. During the process of designing the dress; it became evident that various plastics which are commonly disposed of such as plastic bottle caps, straws, bubble wrap and bags; can be easily transformed into useful, practical and durable products for example making a mould out of wood; then cutting up HDPE 2 bottle caps; melting the plastic bottle caps in a sandwich maker and finally moulding the plastic into an aesthetically pleasing shape or functional product. This process is evident through the main aesthetic feature of marbleised HDPE 2 flower panels placed on the front and back of the dress as well as fusing plastic straws to create the extravagant bodice of the dress.
