This exhibition, in Montreal until the end of 2012, is an idea of the eco-communicator "K" (Karine Lanoie). It showcases the work of 16 fashion designers. The designers were asked to come up with a unique creation: a dress made with waste objects. Each dress was designed according to an environmental theme and was then paired with an informative and creative video as well as one object bearing the autograph of a reknowned artist/scientist/writer supporting the theme. For example, the "lightbulb dress" relates to the consumption of energy and is supported by David Suzuki. To enhance the environment-friendly aspect of this travelling exhibition, the dresses are displayed on the panels of their transportation crates. These panels are covered with various materials such as plexiglass, metal or wood. Since the platform is also the "package", the identification of the creations graphically recalls the packaging system. Read Less
