MODELS wore nothing but duct tape as they strutted down the runway in a daring runway show.
The Black Tape Project used duct tape exclusively to create swimwear for Miami Swim Week.
Some of the looks barely covered the model’s privates and one model flashed her buttocks for the cameras.
They range from red to black to goldoffered both bikini and one-piece swimwear.
The look left little to the imagination and the models trudged down the catwalk with their mouths open.
First introduced at New York Fashion Week in 2018, the Black Tape Project is known for its daring looks.
Taking off the high fashion tape costumes can be painful.
Last year, the models also walked the catwalk at New York Fashion Week and wowed the audience.
The Black Tape Project was started by Joel Alvarez – a first-generation Cuban-American from Miami.
writing on his websiteHe remembered that a model at a photo shoot asked him to photograph her.
Alvarez said, “The design was so incomplete and extremely tight. She looked likewho lost a fight with rubber bands.
“I stuck with it because I kept seeing lines and finding an opportunity to complement the body by adding lines and creating negative spaces that drew the viewer in.”
Alvarez was living in his car before discovering a box in his grandfather’s closet that contained a box of cigars valued at over $26,000.
He used the money to pay off debt and “change his life” before using his last $1,500 to buy a Canon Rebel XTI camera and pursue a career in photography.
He worked withfrom MySpace and Model Mayhem and his work has been featured in publications such as Maxim and Playboy.
Alvarez wants to encourage people around the world to “try the new genre of body art.”
A bold model who suffers from psoriasis, which covers most of her body, bared her skin and everyone loves it.
Stunning Giorgia Lanuzza from Basingstoke, Hampshire has struggled with the skin problem since she was young.
After losing her father in a tragic accident when she was just 13 years old, Giorgia’s grief was at the root of the illness.
She explained: “Shortly after I lost my father, I noticed these spots on my lip, on my knees and on my elbows.
“It was difficult for me because not only was I suffering from stress and the grief of losing my father, but I was also quite difficult as a 13-year-old with big red dots.”
To prove that those affected don’t have to hide, 25-year-old Giorgia wants to give them confidence in their bodies.
