Students get creative & make garments from waste
May '08
Massey University, on May 21 created quite a buzz by holding Wearable Art Competition, for the students. The participants were full of enthusiasm, they had to display their own version of wearable art keeping the theme Reduce, Reuse and Recycle in mind.

The group of students made use of recycled material and created attires that were exceedingly innovative. One set of students made garments using blue plastic bags that were woven in mat form and then pasted it on cardboard to make skirt from it.

The bodice was created out of old wicker canes that were joined together in V shape and broken pieces of cd's added required glamour to the garment.

Some of the other creations that stunned the audience included tops made from bubble wrap, jandals from foam shoulder pads and hula-style skirts from newspaper and plastic strapping.

The aim behind holding this competition was to make people realize that a lot can be done with materials, which we consider trash and how to make best use of waste by giving it a fresh look.
