Designer creates wedding dress made entirely from dumped face-masks as restrictions are lifted

A DESIGNER has created a wedding dress made entirely from dumped face-masks – as all wedding restrictions were lifted.

Designer Tom Silverwood stitched together material from 1,500 masks to create the stunning floor-length white gown.

Wedding planner website Hitched funded the frock to celebrate the return of weddings after Freedom Day. 

Couples getting married can now invite as many guests as they want to their nuptials.

Sarah Allard, editor of Hitched, said: “We’re overjoyed that weddings will be returning in England without legal restrictions from today.

“With thousands of weddings set to take place this summer, couples can now look forward to dancefloors reopening, standing drinks receptions and photographs full of smiling faces with PPE restrictions lifting.”

The Sun is campaigning for PPE mask recycling as 100 million are thrown away each week in the UK, with many harming or even killing birds and animals.
