This peice was inspired by the a news report that straws are in the top 10 list of most discarded and most environmentally damaging plastics. I wanted to bring awareness to my audience the distructiveness this simple object has on our environment. I collected coffee stir straws at work from about 6 months to make this look. I used vinyl from billboard signage and I used mesh produce bags that I spray painted white and black.
This look was modeled by Nichole Selph at the 2018 Trash to Trends Runway Fashion show at Seaworld in Orlando Florida.
