trashbag dress1

Left: dress made from a trash bag; Right: dress made from actual fabric with stretch lining on the inside.

These dresses I created out of a plain ol’ trash bag were pretty successful. They even got mentioned on Stiletto (here is the article, including a photo gallery of my looks). So, I decided to make a dress inspired by the trash bag dress, but this time out of actual/real fabric and not plastic, which, by the way, feels incredibly cold and uncomfortable on the skin. For the inside of the dress I chose a stretch lining, so even if the dress has volumes, it feels very body-conscious and tight. Looks like I chose a very similar fabric, no? Also, the shiny effect is exaggerated because of the flash of the camera.
If you want to get your own “Diana Bobar Trashbag Dress“, made by your own measurements (and from real fabric, of course), just contact me at diana[at]sofashon.com [the price of the dress is 25Euro + 10-15 Euro shipping taxes, if you are not from Romania].
