These beautiful creations from LA-based fashion designer Raquel Allegra were made using discarded shirts from the LA County Jail.
The ultimate in eco-chic couture, Allegra transforms the reclaimed pieces of prison garb into unique, edgy, eco-friendly women's clothing.
Her designs have been seen on a number of celebrities, including Nicole Richie, Penelope Cruz, Jessica Biel, Mary Kate Olsen, Alicia Silverstone, and Lisa Marie Presley.
In addition to being a hit with green buyers, the unique history associated with these garments should make them appealing to lovers of vintage clothing as well.
