Instantly drawn to these images, as I continued reading the post about the Ball-Nogues ‘Built to Wear’ art installation, I was floored, on so many levels. First off, the piece itself is magnificent, but when I discovered it was made entirely out of American Apparel clothing, I just couldn’t believe it.

Made up of 10,000 pieces, the Ball-Nogues ‘Built to Wear’ installation hopes to bring attention to the fact that most US garment production has moved offshore. American Apparel is currently the largest factory in the United States. For more info and images, visit Stats for American Apparel Art Trending: Older & Average
