Teenage coronavirus-themed prom dresses made of duct tape are works of art



Teenage coronavirus-themed prom dresses made of duct tape are works of art

Manker is not swayed by the fact that he won’t be able to wear his dress to the dance. Instead, she felt inspired to make a dress that “documents a part of history.”

Her coronavirus-themed dress featured many pictures depicting life during a pandemic. His vision for the dress began with wanting to capture his own experience. He represented his unforgettable senior year with passionate scenes of students attending virtual graduation.

Manker’s idea evolved as the pandemic continued to have an impact on people throughout the world.

“It’s not just middle school kids, not just America, it’s the whole world affected by the pandemic so I want to show that,” Manker said.

He did this by showing pictures of people fleeing from the giant corona virus to signify the world is trying to avoid catching disease. Another design pays tribute to frontline workers and people suffering from mental health problems as a result of a pandemic.

A high school graduate from Sparta, Illinois, ignored the details of his clothes. He completes his appearance with a variety of creative accessories including “flatten curve” face masks. Manker also makes jewelry, shoes and hair ornaments, “separately together.”

While Manker’s favorite creation is a coronavirus-shaped wallet, he believes that his anklets display the words, “This will also pass,” perfectly summarizing his message. He wants people who see his clothes to be reminded that “even though it’s not like that now, the coronavirus pandemic will eventually pass, everything will be okay in the end.”

Manker also wants to encourage positive enthusiasm with his work. He believes that “we can get some positive things from this whole experience and my clothing is an example.”

It would be difficult to know from looking at the photos of his work, but Manker said this was his debut as a duct tape artist. His previous experience was of making purses and small duct tape when he was much younger. Four months and 41 rolls of duct tape later, he managed to make something far more complicated.

As Manker prepares to leave for Southwestern Illinois College in the fall, he said the experience taught that “you can do many things with tape.”

Mrs. Manker post the dress to Facebook, where posts have been shared more than 254,000 times. Manker said “surreal” that his work was able to make an impression on people around the world who commented on the post.
He said that won contest, run by Duck Brand, will reward because “it means that people see all the positivity that I am trying to show them.”

Duck Brand will give $ 20,000 in cash scholarships to the winners in July.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
