Somewhere beyond the sea...

Back in October, the American Chemistry Council and Gen Art teamed up to form the 2009 Plastics Make it Possible design competition, encouraging participants to create two looks made from plastic or plastic-based materials. The team of Wesley Nault and Daniel Feld (WesFeld) were just announced as winners, and I must say, I think both gowns are stunning. To quote their bio, "the inspiration for this set is inspired by oceanic structures that wash up on shore and slowly bleach out in color by the sun." They cite a conch sea shell as inspiration for the first look and the fossilized exoskeleton of a trilobite as inspiration for the second, and I think the translation from object to garment is friggin' genius. As winners, they'll have a 10-piece collection featured at Gen Art's New Garde New York Fashion Week Show on February 10th. You know I'll be eagerly anticipating that one!
