Vinyl and neoprene are not synonymous with everyday clothing, but for Sharlyn VandenBroek and Laura Crossman, the unconventional is their specialty. The duo behind Whiskey Teacup Designs manipulate materials and use hand dyeing techniques to create looks that are truly unique. For their latest collection, feminine silhouettes are contrasted with edgy details like perforated neoprene harnesses and a touch of fringe. While the designers are certainly experimental, they are also environmentally conscious. They leave no waste by using their scraps to create accessories like clutches and necklaces.
