Captivating Portraits of Clothing Made From Trash (Slideshow)

Reusing materials including corks, tires, ties, and paper, Avantgarb(age) is not yet another collection of clothing with recycled components, nor is it a preachy monologue about the evils of our consumer lifestyle.

The project, a collaboration between American photographer Caitlin Margaret Kelly and designer Aidana Baldassarre, is an invitation to think: about discarded materials, textures, the power of art, and the contrasts between the city and nature, through carefully crafted portraits.
