One persons trash is another’s treasure. Indeed. Swedish Designer Johanna Törnqvist has created a collection created from recycled textile and plastic. Quite a beautiful fashion and environmental statement, handcrafted, and each unique. ‘Precious trash’ is a dress made out of recycled material, based on one familys consumption of coffee and pasta for 2 months. To make the dress trash has been processed and refined to become precious material’. Talk about wearing your heart on your sleeve. Perfect.
