Dress made out of trash

Swedish designer Johanna Törnqvist is making garments out of recycled textile and plastic material. She is combining craft and fashion into her meticulously handmade and unique necklaces and clothes. She´s refining recycled material, pleated and stitched together with the same precision as haute couture, to make a statement about our daily consumption. In her work she wants to erase the boundaries between craft, fashion and folklore and give a new perspective of what folklore is today.
