Upon first glance of Brazilian artist Adriana's creations you wouldn't know they were actually made of condoms. But they are. And they're kind of beautiful.

The Sao Paulo-based artist makes dresses from expired or defective condoms to promote safe sex as social activist encouraging AIDS/HIV prevention.

The 43-year-old's designs are currently being exhibited at the International AIDS conference in Melbourne and are a sight to behold.

Yep. Many "AIDS experts" survived the Malaysian "plane crash".

The problem with our world is that people have time to do this sh!t while people like me work our a$$es off and will probably die early of a heart attack.

So now we will get to see Ms. Harris-Perry wearing this along with her matching tampon earrings.

Are the condoms new or recycled?

Just like the ones Planned Parenthood and UNFPA give out!

They’re doing something different that wealthy people are willing to pay good money for.

Stupid product or not, that is the buyer’s choice and one of the fundamentals of a free society.

You can either accept that some people are seen as innovators for “stupid” reasons (and come up with your own idea) or choose communism where nobody does anything “stupid” and only does the job the state dictates for them.

We're supposed to believe that the only options are burkhas or clothing made of condoms, just as we're supposed to believe that the only options are casual promiscuity or utter repression.

The idea that we can have freedom and morality and dignity is a threat to people who gain money and power by trying to push people to the extremes.

Prove to me that this “artist” and others like her aren’t taking government support.

Also let me know when you spot someone wearing one of these pieces of sh!t. (And not as a red carpet publicity loaner, as usual. Lady Gaga does not count, just because she’s a clear outlier.)

If she had been making these in the 90’s Monica Lewinsky would have been a regular customer.

The article says she’s from Brazil. However, much of the money in the international AIDS “prevention” racket comes from the United States government, so it’s a fair bet that, one way or another, the U.S. taxpayer is on the hook.

The designer missed the mark.

Wouldn't the purported message be better extolled if the condoms were full?
