Wearable Art in Levin Supermarket

Shoppers at the New World Supermarket in Levin got a first hand look at schoolgirl Eden Parker’s recycled dress.  Eden attends Koputaroa School and her assignment was to make a garment from recycled objects.  Using cardboard, masking tape, chicken wire, toilet rolls, and lots of of the store’s reused plastic shopping bags, the dress has been stopping shoppers in their tracks as they enter the doors on their shopping trip.

This talented young lady is keen to do more fashion design projects in the future, she says.

Isn't she just! And still a young girl, not high school age yet.

That is an amazing dress. There is a toilet tissue company in the US that has a contest every year for the best dress made from their product. Some of the creations are amazing too.
