Wandering the streets of Miami with what he refers to as his “super hot dog closet” while speaking about himself in the third person, Nick Mahshie is the genius behind the cardboard couture Tranqui Yanki fashions (which, by the way, is supposed to rhyme).

Mahshie's Tranqui Yanki fashions are, essentially clothing and accessories handcrafted, painted and colored entirely from cardboard.

My personal favorite is the cardboard bikini.
