To the poor, garbage is fashion

Published on Feb 10, 2011

Editor's Pick

New Ark Mission of India dressed up street kids in their everyday clothes - made from discarded newspapers, sacking and cardboard - and photographed them walking the runway, to solicit donations for a winter clothing drive. India's poor are most in need of clothes in the winter months, when temperatures can drop after the extreme heat of summer.

Posters appeared in corporate offices and churches as part of a wider campaign. Over 6,000 sets of clothes were donated, far outstripping the expected 3500.
