They say that one man's trash is another man's treasure, but this is taking it to a whole new level.

Florida-based designer and environmentalist Kristen Alyce has come up with a posh way to reuse everyday waste. She's giving it a second life as haute couture.

As reported by The Daily Mail, her company Garbage Gone Glam turns recyclable items, like candy wrappers and concert tickets, into fashionable cocktail dresses and ballroom gowns.

Alyce says she wanted to find a creative way to raise environmental awareness. Her first piece was a dress made entirely out of magazines and plastic bags. Now she uses a variety of materials, including huge pasta bags, playing cards, discarded leaflets and posters.
