Artist Munenari Maegawa has come up with a brilliant use for old packaging that would otherwise become garbage. She takes packages for items like M&M's and McDonalds and turns them into pop culture pieces of clothing.

These incredibly colorful pieces of apparel include vests, ties, bibs and ribbons. Munenari Maegawa's series 'Package' stands out. The vest in this collection is made from laundry detergent boxes, like Gain for example. The M&M tie is one of the most visually interesting pieces in this collection. Its unconventional design and comically large shape make it a funky less formal tie alternative.

'Package' is an imaginative way to recycle product packaging. In the fashion world it's important to be daring and different; this quirky collection definitely meets those standards. Wearing garbage has never looked this great before.
