Designer Walter Raes has made somewhat of a career--or at least an entertaining Web site--out of creating fashions from unlikely materials. There's the Keypad Clubbing Top, the Cassette Tape Dance Dress and the Cola Wedding Dress. But perhaps most interesting is the Charles Period Top, which is made from tampons. A period piece, indeed.
Raes told Ecouterre, "By grouping single tampons together, I created a complex but versatile top. The object you shy away from actually becomes beautiful."
