Eileen....T-shirts Reimagined

One last photograph from my Runaway Runway adventure last Friday. Darling Eileen was not part of the fashion show on the stage, but nevertheless, shared the spirit of it: she made her skirt with old t-shirts she purchased for 50 cents on the pound. Her top seems to be another t-shirt, reshaped into a one-shoulder wrap around. Even the rose, I believe, is made of t-shirt scraps.

Eileen told me she was planning to stitch up more skirts and sell them at Sid & Nancy in Five Points. A charming way, perhaps, to make something of regrettable souvenirs? I fancy a kilt made of "and all I got was this lousy t-shirt" shirts.
