EcoFab Fashion Show: Dalia Coat (knitted plastic)

Hello Loves! I recently participated in my second EcoFab Fashion Show. Each designer was challenged to create a look from a recycled material. I chose work with plastic bags again to create a statement coat. After the last show I told myself that I would never knit with plastic again but I was drawn to it like a moth to the flame.( Last years’s look can be found here: http://kialoveblog.com/2013/10/20/ecofab-fashion-show-plastic-bag-dress/).I learned from my mistakes and gave myself a lot more time to execute my design. I just might do it again. What do you think?

I love creating accessories but my goal is to expand my brand by creating an outerwear line. My collection will include a combination of chunky knit sweaters, coats, jackets and capes. I am truly passionate about creating and I would love to continue what I love to do with your help. Visit http://www.gofundme.com/6rdy64 to donate. Every little bit helps. Thanks in advance:)

Ok.. so, I NEVER wear my own work outside of the house.Strange, huh? I know, I know. I am making baby steps,though. Today, I wore my “Wrapped Tight” necklace to an event and received some pretty good feedback.I might just wear it more often.
