Duct Tape Creations - My Parsons/Teen Vogue Assignment




I'm currently enrolled in a fashion program through Parsons School of Design in collaboration with Teen Vogue. The unit I just completed, "Think Like A Designer," had numerous assignments that got me out of my comfort zone and challenged my creativity. My last project was to design an accessory and clothing piece using an unconventional material. I chose duct tape.


 
The tote bag I created was made from duct tape, with lace on the sides and a few pieces of cardboard. It took a little over two hours and I was happy with the end result. You could totally use the bag to store magazines or cosmetic supplies, etc. 


  
I thought it would be fun to show you the progression of the dress. I assumed it would take hours upon hours, but it only took me two to complete my project! 




After doing some research, I learned the company that makes all these really cool patterned and colorful duct tapes, has a contest each year in the springtime. They challenge high school teenagers to make a dress/suit for their prom entirely out of duct tape.  Check out the link to see some really cool creations: http://stuckatprom.com/  

P.S. Thank you Ashley (my best friend) for volunteering to be my model. 

Would you wear a duct tape creation? What do you think of my dress? Any DIY ideas for me to try out for my blog?


Until next time!

  1. Awesome...I'm glad that you included the progression,as that gives me a better feel for the finished product. It would have been difficult to visualize how creative you've been. Nice to have a "live-in" model. KUDOS

  3. I love it. It's actually really pretty and I liked seeing the progression of hoe it was made. The tote bag was also really nice. And I bet quite functional. I had no idea you could get duct tape in all those patterns. So cool!
