Countless green aluminium Diet 7-up Paillettes cover this silk kelly green shift mini dress. Pailletts chime when moved. Slips over head.

In a 2016 interview with Julien Sauvalle of OUT Magazine, Mizrahi recalls the arduous work that went into creating his recycled pieces, “It took us three years to make those dresses. We paid homeless people to collect Coke cans and Budweiser cans -- two of my favorite things -- and then 7Up cans, so it was green, red, white, and gold. We split them open and washed them, then shipped them to Paris to Langlois-Martin, who makes these beautiful paillettes, and then they were sent on to India to have them sawn onto panels. It took us years."
