One person's trash is artist Marina DeBris eye-catching "trashion"

Artist Marina DeBris' materials aren't oil paint or clay, but plastic bags, fish-shaped soy sauce containers, discarded soft toys, dog-chewed tennis balls and other rubbish she finds littering beaches in the eastern suburbs. She takes the detritus and transforms them into wearable artworks she terms "trashion".

"I aim to get people to think about the consequences of our consumption," says DeBris, who works under a pseudonym and started the project in 2009. "I don't understand why we don't value things. How can you buy something, use it once and throw it out? That really boggles my mind."
