This season, dress up in frocks embellished with PVC, scarves made of plastic and acrylic bags

 

When UK eco-designer, Michelle Brand, created a wedding dress made of 2,220 recycled pet bottles in 2011, who would have thought that soon global runways would feature acrylic clutches by Gucci, plastic heels by Givenchy and PVC trenches by Burberry. Don’t let the rains dampen your style – go with our pick of colour blocking PVC, unusual acrylics and up-scaled perspex.
