Recycling Music (Jacket & Skirt) by Yeung Yau

Kai Yeung Yau recycled video tape clothing

We've been exposed to this wonderful London-based ecofashion designer thanks to Inhabitat's Spring Greening Competition, in which we've taken part as well and entered the notable entries list.

Being a fashion designer, Ossy likes garment textures very much and this one is much more than just that - believe it or not, these clothes are made of RECYCLED MAGNETIC TAPE!

Process: The video tape was bought from a second-hand shop and then stitched on garments to visualize music with different pitches and frequencies by varying the heights and widths of the pleating.

What's more to say - INSPIRING!!! & goes with everything we stand for: recycling, art, fashion, texture and invention. Check out this video for a closer look at the clothing and a quick glimpse to the artist at work in the background. Like plus plus.
