Caution Dress

Made from caution tape, this dress signals a strong warning!

Caution tape recovered from the side of the road was sewn onto a vintage sundress. This serious eco-wear took 50 hours to create and was completed in 2011.

Global output of heat-trapping carbon dioxide jumped by 6% in 2010. This increase in carbon dioxide is very disturbing for two reasons: 1.) it marks the biggest increase on record, and 2.) the new figures for 2010 mean that levels of greenhouse gases are higher than the worst case scenario outlined by climate experts just four years ago. This information represents a clear CAUTION that the world’s efforts to slow man-made global warming are not enough, and we need to take more drastic measures.
