This Gorgeous Gown Is Trash -Literally (Video)


This evening gown is made entirely from trash that washed up on a beach. Keri Lumm (@thekerilumm) shares the story.

An eco-fashion designer has spent four weeks creating a stunning ball gown made entirely of 1.5 tonnes of marine waste.

Former GP Linda Thomas, from Bristol, spotted a group of volunteers collecting the lump of marine waste, which had been bobbing around off Pentewan Sands Beach for four years after it tumbled off a cargo ship.

Admiring their efforts on social media, she asked if she could have some of the soggy and smelly material to make into a dress.

And after four weeks of cleaning, drying and sewing, Dr Thomas created an elegant, halterneck ballgown.
