This gorgeous Yuliya Kyrpo upcycled origami dress is made from reused newspapers folded into paper cranes. Creating a unique and intricate shape, this gown has a sweetheart neckline and a long paper crane train.

Using random splashes of color within the newspaper ads, this dress is delicately woven together, further accentuating its one-of-a-kind details. Featured in The Trash Fashion Show, this gorgeous gown by Yuliya Kyrpo now resides in the London Science Museum.

Implications - Consumers are appreciative of products which use recycled materials because they satiate consumer desire to reduce negative environmental effects on the planet. Corporations may consider the use of upcycled textiles in the manufacturing of their products to similarly satiate this consumer want.
