Salford students get carried away with fashion

The students used different techniques to make the items, including knitting shredded bags together.Fiona knitted a dress out of the bags and says they were surprisingly easy to knit once she’d managed to shred them into ‘yarn’, although she describes the needles as being the size of ‘cricket wickets’.The resulting dress is now showing alongside a waterproof mac backed with calico and a white jacket made of carrier bag handles.Fiona says it was important to the pair that the finished fashion retained some of the characteristics of the plastic bags.”We wanted to keep the original properties of the bag namely that it’s waterproof and strong.”I think we’ve done that and made something which people could wear.”The work of the two University of Salford fashion students can be seen alongside a host of other exhibits in ‘Art and Advertising A Creative Fusion’ at the Lowry until Sunday 11 April.Entry to the exhibition is free.Search term:BBC navigation News Sport Weather Capital TV Radio MoreCBBC CBeebies Comedy Food History Learning Music Science Nature Local Northern Ireland Scotland Wales Full A Z of BBC sitesBBC links Mobile site Terms of Use About the BBC Advertise With Us Privacy Accessibility Help Ad Choices Cookies Contact the BBC Parental GuidanceBBC 2014 The BBC is not responsible for the content of external sites.
