Pianist Plays Carnegie Hall In Dress Made From Juice Boxes

The dress was introduced at the concert, no less, by the film actress and eco-activist Daryl Hannah. all cut into different size squares and mounted on to a silk taffeta lining into different patterns - Nina Valenti of naturevsfuture designed the green gown.

The concert was sponsored by the Concert Artists Guild in collaboration with TerraCycle and Honest Tea, two companies dedicated to doing creative things with consumer waste. Fashion designer Nina Valenti created the gown, turning the pouches into triangles that formed a pleasing, purple-brown pattern.
