A fashion student with an eye for the weird and wonderful has made a dress out of pizza boxes and it looks pretty good.
Fauve Wright, a student at Northumbria University, is a Domino’s lover and instead of throwing the boxes away like most of us, she had an artistic idea.
The student, who’s in her final year of a fashion communication course, is also a keen fashion photographer.
Nearing the end of her degree when the Covid-19 pandemic struck, Fauve had to think of a new idea for her final project.
One of the things Fauve noticed was the important role online takeaway and food delivery services were playing, and this inspired her to get creative.

As a result, she created a series of garments themed around the impact of Covid-19.
She made a makeshift studio and has creatively turned unconventional materials into quirky items of clothing.
The outfits are a bit of fun in what is a very scary time for everyone.
She explained: ‘With Domino’s being such an iconic brand, and my go-to takeaway, I had a lightbulb moment when my family recently had a pizza party.
‘I kept the pizza boxes and put them to good use by making a skirt. Due to coronavirus, I’ve had to utilise materials to make all my garments, so this seemed like a perfect way to upcycle.
‘Pizza boxes are harder to work with than you’d imagine!’
It took Fauve a day to make the Domino’s skirt. Once created, she took the photos in her bedroom with sister Tiny as the model.
Rachael Giles, from Domino’s, was delighted with the final product.
She said: ‘During these uncertain times we are doing all we can to bring a slice of happiness to people’s homes in the form of pizza.
‘We’re blown away by Fauve’s creativity and think the Domino’s skirt is THE must-have fashion item!
‘We’re sure this will inspire others, so we’d love people to share their pizza box creations with us on our social channels. Amazing work Fauve, your next Pepperoni Passion is on us!’
