Plastic is the most damaging refuse being discarded at this moment. In 2015, our global plastic consumption worldwide has been estimated at 298 million tons, and 8 million tons of plastic are dumped into our oceans every year.
The performance consisted of presenting an alternative fashion show: the dress made of plastic bags sewn together was worn by a model with physical characteristics opposed to the aesthetic standards dictated by high fashion.
