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."

Dramatic and macabre skull necklace by Knight & Hammer. We adore this bold opera length necklace, with black enamel chain accented by four brilliant, polished gold skulls. Wear to the opera (and scandalize!) or over that perfect white tee with jeans (and scandalize!). A truly flexible necklace!
We're really feeling an Alexander McQueen / Damian Hirst "For the Love of God" rhinestone skull vibe from this piece.

Simply astounding evening dress ensemble by Pauline Trigere. The ensemble consists of a dramatic skirt and matching cardigan. The skirt is maxi length with an A - line silhouette and narrow waistband. The cardigan is hip length, with long sleeves and an open front. The ensemble is fabulous, with sheer black base and scalloped devore burnout velvet that shimmers beautifully. Wear with a black silk romper (or our listed silver lame Pauline Trigere romper!) topped with the cardigan tucked wrap - like into the skirt for some 70s studio 54 fabulousness!
