Stephanie Watson is one talented and imaginative fashion designer, who has bucked the trend of spending alot of dough on a wedding dress. Using over 10,000 bread tags collected over a period of ten years , she has created an eye catching, upcycled wedding dress that cost just $36.00.
Stephanie and her boyfriend started collecting bread tags ten years ago after finding a pile of them on a windowsill when they moved in together. If you are trying to do the math on this, don’t think Stephanie and her new husband ate their way through 10,000 bread loaves ~ approximately 3 loaves a day. Friends added to the collection too, and as fate had it, when Stephanie ran short of tags towards the end of her wedding dress creation, her baker cousin stepped in and contributed the remaining required!
Whilst this gown may not be everyone’s cup of tea, it certainly does provoke thought about everyday items that contribute to landfill, and celebrates innovation in re-thinking ways we can re-use materials – bread and butter stuff.
