Here’s the great photo of her wearing the upcycled denim stunner.
The garment that Dua Lipa chose is from her winter 2018 collection.
Natalie Ballout says was inspired by the tragic state of our environment as a result of watching a documentary about the Great Barrier Reef dying at an alarming rate.
She then created a skeletal fish pattern and printed it on hand-dyed denim and then for Dua Lipa’s piece, and splashed bright orange and deep purple dyes against the classic washed out blue.
“I wanted to convey my concept of what was once a flourishing ‘Great’ Barrier Reef to what now is turning into a lifeless environment because of us,”
“I wanted to provoke my audience . . . we as a people are collectively responsible for the future of our environment.” – Natalie Ballout
