A designer in Britain has come up with a unique idea of incorporating discarded masks into a frilly white wedding dress made entirely of used masks.

The gown has been made by putting together 1500 used masks. Designer Tom Silverwood made this dress with funding from the wedding planner website ‘Hitched’. It was showcased by model Jemima Hambro in a shoot at St. Paul’s Cathedral. Recyclable plastic PPE has been used around the waist to give it the fitted shape.

The UK celebrated ‘Freedom Day’ as the government finally ended the year-old lockdown and re-opened bars, clubs, and restaurants on Monday, July 19.

The dress has been specially made to commemorate the lifting of the restrictions. Reports state that  more than 100 million disposable masks have been worn since the start of the year-long lockdown in the country since March last year.
