Abstract

This dress was created to increase awareness of the global air pollution issue and to emphasize our cooperative efforts to better the air quality. The abandoned air filters were recycled and rebirthed to create an elegant, romantic, and energetic dress. Just like combining people’s hopes and efforts one by one, the small pieces were connected to create a hopeful, blooming dress. The interesting textures of the air filters encompasses the airy, lightweight dress, and delivers the hopeful message. The dress was made through sustainable construction methods such as zero wastes. This design explored a new material, air filters, recreated into interesting textures. A special construction method was utilized to make the dress using the new material.
