Women have been taking to clubs and bars wearing nothing but a few strips of duct tape strategically placed over their nipples and intimate areas becoming the “duct tape” trend.
Joel Alvarez is the “creative” designer who spearheaded the trend. A designer from Miami, he named the ‘artistic’ venture called “black tape project”.
Joel describes his creation as an ‘exclusive fashion experiment’ – and it’s certainly catching on.
The black tape project has over 200,000 followers on instagram and women are descending on clubs and bars wearing nothing but tape.
And it’s work, the fashion trend is raging on as Joel and his drove of duct tape-clad models have toured Las Vegas, New York, the Caribbean, and Europe.
Some of the women embracing the quirky trend choose to give it a more modest twist by wearing jeans and then decorate their upper body with tape, whilst other ladies take the trend as far as they can with minimal strips of tape.
Elaborating on the concept on his facebook page, Joel says: ’embodying the character of Miami’s nightlife culture, the black tape project incorporates one of the most common household items, coalesced with joel’s artistic flare and the natural beauty of the human body.’
