This project was inspired by my own habits of wanting to buy the nicest dress and the issues girls face shopping for formal events. This project showcases that similar products can be remade from recycled fabrics.
In this project, I decided to remake my formal dress from all recycled fabrics to create awareness for this ongoing issue. I chose to make it from all bright and colourfull fabrics to emphasise the specific features of the dress and to add to the aesthetic value. The name 'Recycled Regalia' comes from the term royal attire which is the perception society places on fashion and the need to own the best clothes.
