Lexus uses recycled car parts to create fashion-forward apparel
Instead of trashing old cars in scrap yards, Lexus has come up with a better way to put to rest retired vehicles. In an effort to promote recycling for cars, the company broke down a CT Hybrid car and used the 2000 and more components to create some pretty fashion-forward apparel! The parts were given by the luxury automaker to four designers who then put their art and talent to use to come up with astounding finished pieces which will feature in a six-page advertising campaign in the January 2012 issue of the Vogue magazine. Using everything from crank bearings, transmission starters and exhaust manifold gaskets to armrest upholstery, these costumes sure as hell seem to be bred for the cat walk.
