A fashion fanatic on social media has shared a number of images painting a picture of designs that were made out of simple objects which we may deem useless.
The account holder @_gastt’s latest offerings on a design by Jean Paul Gaultier have left many, especially those from the Caribbean and African parts of the world, amused.
On the other hand, some may have regrets as they felt they could have designed these fashion items using the leaves of plants that are normally part of their lives every day - thus making extra cash.

“Everyone’s coming at the bag, but I think it’s interesting to see his approach to sustainability. We talk about fashion being more sustainable but when designers do it they get clowned for it.”
“Finally some high fashion I can afford.”
