Romanian designer Gabriela Mirea's 'Plastic is Fantastic' line is a collection of fashionable clothes created completely from garbage bags, plastic bags, plastic wrap and other trashy materials. The designer's amazing recycled fashionable clothes were displayed at the Bucharest Fashion show.

Gabriela Mirea's unique 'Plastic is Fantastic' line points out the importance of wasted and disposed materials in the fashion industry.

Implications - More and more fashion consumers are embracing eco-friendly apparel and accessories. Fashion designers can no longer afford to ignore this shift, and are thus designing clothes that allow a consumer to fully embrace a greener lifestyle. Using trash as a medium for eco-friendly clothing is just one of the ways in which a designer can embrace the green movement.
