The purpose of this mini-cocktail dress design is to delve into the issue of excessive consumption and the environmental consequences of the footwear industry. The synthetic materials used in shoe production pose long-term environmental challenges. These materials take years to biodegrade, releasing toxic chemicals that harm both our planet and everything living on it. The consequence is evident as more than 300 million pairs of shoes are discarded each year in the United States, with a staggering 95%ending up in landfills. By creating a dress from discarded sneakers, the design serves as a visual representation of the wasteful nature of the footwear industry. It encourages viewers to rethink what they choose to put on their feet and what happens to them once they are discarded.
