How far can someone go in the name of recycling? Well, you have no idea. The Recycled Wardrobe Collection, by RJ Dollen will make your jaws drop and eyes pop out in disbelief. He has crafted smoking hot clothes out of pure trash, which no one can ever imagine to drape their bodies with.
He is out encouraging people to embrace triple R’s, which stand for reducing, reusing and recycling. The Colorado based photographer has swapped trash into sexy and high class fashion. Eco-friendly traits and ‘oomph’ factor are the USP of this collection.
Thrown away cardboards, magazine and bubble wraps have been used in an ingenious way. A bubble dress has been crafted using bubbles wraps that keep our delicate things safe and make sure they don’t break. What happens when a parcel arrives through FedEx? No need to mention, the outer cover that bears the FedEx logo is torn apart and later thrown away. Dollen used covers like these to craft a top and a skirt. Wow!
An expanded cardboard bustier, as the name suggests uses cardboard that had served its worth according to others. While reading a magazine, how often have you thought that every page could be a potential part of a dress? DJ Dollen sensed a probability and used glossy pages as a raw material as well. As weird as it may sound, the line includes a recycled creation dubbed, Packing Peanut Top.
I know you have already started brooding over the wearability quotient after going through the images. The collection ranks low on the wearability factor and is meant to be savored like an art form, which doesn’t have any use. Through the recycled collection, DJ Dollen is trying to send a green message and must say he has managed to do a sexy, oops I mean commendable job.
