18-year-old Casey Hansel is breaking through in the fashion world more unconventionally than most. The Lehigh University freshman has made a series of dresses devised of entirely recyclable material.

Casey Hansel uses items such as garbage bags, aluminum pot can tabs, duct tape and other items you can find out on garbage day to create her pieces. Though made up of entirely recyclable material, the dresses are both beautiful and durable.

Implications - Hansel's dresses prove that you really can make beautiful art out of everything, and give truth to the old adage "one man's garbage is another man's treasure" -- although, in this case, it's a woman's treasure.
