Prom Dress Made from Java Machine Discards

 - May 29, 2009
Coffee addiction drove Aimee Kick into fashion design. She is the "coffee cup girl" at Francis Howell North High School in Missouri, and when it came closer to prom, she knew she wanted a one-of-a-kind statement dress that expressed her personality.

In her spare time, Kick rounded up a few bazillion coffee filters and designed and made her own dress from the filters. She looked to veggies, tea bags, bubble wrap and aluminum foil, but didn’t like the durability of those materials.

Aimee, the "coffee filter dress girl," is a senior taking three courses at the high school, one online course and working part time. Starbucks! Hire this girl!
