Every woman wants to make her wedding dress different, for it’s the most precious dress in her life.
Victorian bride Stephanie Watson is no different. But for her, it took almost 10 years to make her dream wedding dress which is entirely made up of over 10,000 plastic bread bag clips.
Stephanie Watson, a 29-year-old fashion designer from Trentham, Austraila, has been saving plastic bread bags clips for 10 years.
Stephanie and groom Will Wapling, her schoolmate, were not even 20 when she started collecting bread tags. And they used to joke that they would marry when she had enough clips to make a wedding dress.
At first, it was just a joke, but later on their friends also started collecting bread clips for the couple. And she had to buy bigger and bigger jars to keep them.
But in spite of having thousands of tags, she didn’t have enough tags to make a wedding dress. A cousin of the bridegroom, who works as a baker, donated an entire roll of bread tags.
It took her more than 300 hours to come up with a beautiful, interesting wedding dress which is completely outlandish.
Interestingly, this recycled dress cost Stephanie just AUD $36.
