Practical Fashion? Designing with Condoms

Twenty-five years after the beginning of the AIDS epidemic, there are plenty of new HIV infections. The least quarter decade saw condoms go from a slap-stick joke (remember The Summer of ’42?) to a utilitarian health-preserving accessory for all sexual active adults.

Yep, I’m talking about lesbians too. Toys that are shared need to be covered. The first documented case of girl-to-girl transmission involved a dildo. Buy ’em. Use ’em.

A fundraiser this week in San Francisco for a local HIV/AIDS support organization will feature a fashion show, including this ballgown, made with 2,000 condoms. Read the story here.
