Dressed to Suit

Samantha Lewis's avatar Samantha Lewis

I am consistently intrigued by "upcycling" and how to create something functional and distinctive out of everyday materials. In this year's entry I have utilized formal wear and playing cards to create unique fashion looks. My entry consists of 5 dresses (one dress for each suit plus a "royal" dress of face cards) and 4 pairs of shoes using distinctive designs. In total 21 decks (or over 1000 cards!) were used in the creation of this entry. These dress designs range size 0- 10 and are completely wearable. You can get the look too!
