A dress made entirely of condoms has been sold for a whooping R15 000 at an auction.
The anonymous buyer outbid others at a auction held in Midrand, South Africa. Speaking on condition of anonymity, the businessman said he was inspired by the dress in that it will raise HIV/Aids awareness in general and he is happy to see the youths educating each other on condoms.
The enterprising youth who designed the dress said she used approximately 3500 condoms for the design and it took her 3 months to complete because she had to source for free condoms.
Social media was however not forgiving with some people blasting the designer for wasting condoms . ‘Imagine how many people will not use condoms because of your wastage’ one user said. Another user took it a step further and said: ‘The country is facing water shortages and you are wasting condoms’
It was not clear however what the businessman wanted to do with the condom creation.
