Condoms and Fashion?..wait for it...waiiiiiit.....BAM -> Adriana Bertini

I have come across many talented fashion designers, whether its top notch Stefano Gabbana & Domenico Dolce or some young funky vintage shopper who makes their own style. But tonight i have come across someone very unique.....Adriana Bertini...(before you google this artist because many of you might be already fed-up with my rubbish)...hear me out....this brazilian lady was volunteering at an aids prevention group obviously to create awareness and was inspired by working with the children.........Next thing you know, she was using her talent as an artist to create couture out of EXPIRED or quality test REJECTED condoms to make dresses, skirts and suits.



Already its so pretty amazing/crazy funky...oh my gosh i love it......These designs are vibrant and to be honest when i was looking at her stuff, i could not blink...i was sooo......yep...you take a look and tell me!
We take a condom and i assume that majority of us just snap them on us or our partner, but Adriana no no no....she cuts, twists, shapes, melts, pastes, colors, crochets and sculpts them and HOURS later you have a gown made with 6 Thousand 5 hundred condoms!


its fashion and charity work all in one, Tres Cool i say!
Mucho love.

Too bad they're made out of expired condoms. They'd come in handy if you needed one on the spot to have a quickie hahaha
