The Ventilator  by Maurice

The advent of the plastic spout in 21st century milk cartons is symptomatic of our over-consumptive lifestyle.  The many miles – biked-not-driven – represented by the inner tubes in this dress are punctured by the superfluous plastic spouts.  This message of gloom and doom is juxtaposed with the hoots and high-jinks that you’ll inspire when you slip on The Ventilator by Maurice.

What’s more, The Ventilator is made of 95% post-consumer waste! Side effects may include: strutting, sashaying and excessive portal popping!
