This video was played as the introduction of Lunna Menoh's October 2008 Couture Salvage fashion show to a live audience.
Here is a description of her show from Lunna's website:
Lun*na Menoh's new project "Couture Salvage" is work that comments on waste and how waste can be made into new things, for instance new Couture. No fabric, no piece of furniture, and no mechanical part are wasted! As humans we cannot ignore the common everyday object, because that object can be changed into something new. So the focus is on the circulation of 'goods' and how it starts off useless and then turned into something useful and new.
Lun*na Menoh saves them from the graveyard of crap and turns it into gold, For instance:
-A vacuum cleaner becomes a jacket!
-A speaker becomes a skirt!!
-A chair becomes a necklace!!!
All works by Lun*na Menoh are for sale after the performance.
