Recycled Dresses

Found this video on YouTube about the Microsoft Web Platform, search the Web Platform Installer, and the Windows Web Application Gallery. Starring Scott Guthrie and Soma.  Great work.

I actually saw them filming this on campus one day, but had no idea what this guy running around in a Hawaiian shirt was all about.

I was at the Plant Amnesty’s Festival of Trees yesterday here in Seattle and was somewhat surprised to see some amazing fashion on display. I was able to snap a few pictures and this was one of my favorites.

On the left is a dress made up of mostly Cat5 cables and other computer wiring.

On the right is a vinyl record bodice made using two Bert Baccarat records. The skirt consists of a safety fence, bronchi rain coats and window blinds to name a few of the items.

I later leaned that the dresses were from a the local ReStore Haute Trash Fashion Show

After watching many episodes of Project Runway, my favorites were always the ones using everyday materials.
