More condom-wear from a fashion show in China

Condom DressKirsten forwarded me more great dresses and other wearables from a fashion show at the 4th China Reproductive Health New Technologies & Products Expo in Beijing July this past summer.

Condoms of all shapes and sizes were used to make dresses, hats and even lollipops. Models fought through extravagant soap bubble special effects to show off tight-fitting wedding gowns, scaly-looking evening dresses, outrageous bikinis and other garments made entirely of condoms.

I wrote before about a dress made of condoms this new article shows several great examples of condom wearables. mentions that the show was organized by China’s largest condom manufacturer to promote the use of condoms in the fight against HIV and AIDS.

Dress made of condoms

It’s funny, you wouldn’t think a dress made of thousands of condoms would be a pretty thing, but the overall effect is quite stunning!

Art MoCo offers some explanation of why the artist Adriana Bertini creates these amazing dresses:

The Brazilian artist started creating fashions out of condoms to highlight the need to look at the prophylactics as basics, so that we would don them as easily as a pair of jeans. Some of her dresses use thousands of condoms; one wedding dress took almost 80,000 (and to think, some people hesitate over using just one!).
