Implications - The concurrent rise of environmentalism and the DIY movement inspired a wave of fashion that used recycled, repurposed material and featured Mother Nature as a muse. Angela Marklew combined the two, outfitting models with outfits made of fishing nets and using fish and shells as props. Her modern mermaids evoke beauty and inspire viewers to pay attention to the environment.
