From garbage bags transformed into ruffled skirts to egg cartons turned into a Viking costume, among other designs, it was a fashion parade like no other. The idea of a waste-free wardrobe was to instil the children’s commitment to the environment by transmuting yesterday’s disposables into tomorrow’s runway trends.
