Trash and couture is being merged in Liya Liu's latest collection.

Trash and couture has merged once again in Liya Liu’s latest collection which revolves entirely around things that go in the bin. With garbage bags at its core, the CSM and Parsons graduate’s latest production L’indefini-Trash is a critique of the amount of waste generated by the fashion industry. Apart from garbage bags, the designer takes to waterproof nylon (which resembles garbage bags) to create utilitarian garments such as rain coats – and wedding-style dresses (this is where she really scores) – which she decorates with paper, lace and laundry tags for some authentic textured detailing.
