High Fashion Couture- From Recycled and Discarded Materials

post-image

West Village artist Debra Rapoport, 73, has a knack for turning garbage into fashion. Her signature hats, made from paper towels, sell for as much as $450. “Recycled materials speak to me. It’s like they say, ‘Give me a second life!’ She finds recycled, discarded and unusual materials and gives them a brilliant second life as high fashion couture.

No items or material of any origin are out of consideration for her “Gifted and Thrifted” unique creations, A self-described “advanced style star”, Rapoport combs the streets of New York City in search of that which catches her eye. http://debrarapoport.com/
