Aluminum Coke cans make this little black dress a classic!
Aluminum cans were hand-cut into leaves, petals and vines then hand-sewn onto the dress, purse and vintage shoes. The 1950s retro cocktail dress and purse were created from canvas scraps. Coke can aluminum earrings and necklace top off the ensemble. This fashion creation took 135 hours to make. Created in 2006.
Commissioned by the Coca Cola ® Company
Find out where to recycle aluminum cans in your community at: www.earth911.com.
Recycling 1 aluminum can saves enough energy to run a computer or TV for 3 hours, or a 100-watt bulb for 20 hours.
Every 3 months, Americans throw away enough aluminum to rebuild our entire fleet of commercial airplanes.
