(Scroll down for video) A fashion designer showed off her new collection of dresses made entirely out of condoms.
Adriana Bertini, an artist and designer in Brazil, has created a project called “Condom Couture.”
Bertini uses expired or defective condoms to make pieces of art. Bertini’s work is not only beautiful, but is a practical learning experience.
Bertini runs workshops in various schools and colleges. These workshops are aimed at raising awareness of safe sex strategies in order to combat HIV, AIDS and STDs.
Bertini gets young people up-close and personal with condoms. She encourages discussions about the role condoms can play in sex.
Participants in these workshops are also taken through the process of dyeing, shaping and assembling condom art. Bertini has been on the condom art scene for a while, with some designs dating back to 1997.
She hopes that her dresses made of condoms will inspire dialogue and raise awareness.
