He has produced various stunning designs while showing his responsibility and service towards the environment. For example, he has created, a stunning design using 18 burberry macs, a fishtail corset dress using 28 camouflage Army jackets, and a body-contouring gown using discarded baseball jackets.

 

 

One of Gary’s creation is the newspaper dress. It is made from 30 copies of the Financial Times! He says, “he desire behind this collection is about re-contextualising iconic, everyday garments to create dramatic new silhouettes.”
