Valerie Cousens of Green Dress Designs created this gorgeous New York City skirt out of an Umbrella! Don't throw those broken umbrellas out! Upcycle them into wearable garments that turn heads! A black crinoline was added to give it shape and it's super cute! Valerie also recycled a tie that was no longer wanted into a beautiful cuff and scarf/collar piece. A pink flowered broach was used to fasten the collar and doubles as a weight to keep it down front while a rhinestone covered round button was used to fasten the cuff. Cuff too loose? Just sneak a safety pin in it (which can be hidden) to tighten it around smaller wrists (like mine.)
Cort Pope created the Toronto Skyline on my cheek and owns her own company called "Princess Elite" and she's under 30! Thanks to WearMe Lexx for putting on the #battleofthedesigners fashion show event. A Special Thanks to Mike Skarvinko of Mike Skarvinko photography for the photos. ❤?
