Is That An Umbrella or Are You Just Happy to See Me?

Believe it or not, this dress is made of umbrella fabric and is designed by Brooklyn's Catherine Charlot with a group of other "Trashy Divas" participated in a fashion show featuring garments made from upcycled sources such as umbrella fabric, men's shirts and pants as well as jewelry made of trash bags--including the choker and blue bangle pictured above. The entire group of photos and information on the "Trashy Divas" group can be found at Catherine's blog at: http://himanerad.blogspot.com. 30% of the sales are going to support art programs in Haiti, Catherine's country of birth.
P.S. Thanks to all of those who donated clothing or umbrellas.
