Recycled leather jacket into evening gown

Outi Pyy, a recycle fashion and DIY blogger and author of TRASHION book made this evening gown from men leather jackets. The base is first fitted on the model (second hand dress) and the leather strips then glued onto the base. The dress itself is quite genius. It does not get dirty from red wine spills. The dress is much better ventilated than a regular leather garment as the leather strips are glued by layering them slightly. Very durable to wear and a lot of rock’n’roll recycle attitude. This dress and other recycled ones by designer Mert Otsamo’s from clothing exhibition in Helsinki can be seen at Outi Pyy website (article is in Finnish).
