Recycling Gets Sexy

In this regard, I believe one should view her work as art as opposed to a piece of everyday fashion. Her design shows us that there is enormous potential in the things that we throw away. That is important, but it also limits the impact of this design.
Since it is made out of denim, this probably isn't the most practical of bathing suits to go swimming in. However, I read somewhere that most bikinis never go into any body of water other a washing machine. That makes this less of an issue.

Clothes, after all, are meant to be worn; to be a part of our life. Clothes, I believe, should make a statement. However, they remain silent if they're never worn.
The fact that this design takes something that would normally go into a landfill and gives it new life just makes this design that much more incredible, in my opinion.
