NewspaperDress.jpg Newspaper dress, made from 30 copies of the 'Financial Times'. from Gary Harvey's collection showcased at the Estethica exhibition at the London Fashion Week .

The collection creates a dramatic display designed to change people’s perception of second-hand clothing and create fashion with a conscience. Gary uses material he finds in places like secondhand clothing stores to avoid waste, he says of good quality second hand clothing, people "wear it one or two times then discard it because it's suddenly deemed aesthetically unimportant and out of date when there's years of life left in the garment." His collection "was a comment about thinking about the real cost of the garment that you buy, about that cost being natural resources, exploitation of labour, the biodegradable nature of garments."

there was a gentleman who used to stand outside of Macy's Department store on 7th Avenue and 34th Street a few years ago wearing a newspaper suit. He would stand there at rush hour, no matter the weather.
even in the rain he'd be there with an umbrella.
