Deconstructed Suit Jacket Dress

Deconstructed Treasure 
45 repurposed vintage men suit pants and 5 suit jackets
This dress coat, includes raw edges, inside-out-seams, and belt loops from suit pants
All suit pants and jackets were collected from a second hand warehouse in Brooklyn (from the garbage pile ;) ). Creating something from damaged unwanted goods was key when creating this dress coat.
A skirt cage was created out of wiring and ridgeline to allow the fullness of the skirt to display.
While selecting the pieces, I made sure to focus on grey tones, textures, and fabric weights. I wanted to create a piece that beautiful to look at, and at the same time puzzling.
