The XVI International Aids Conference has just wrapped up in Toronto and a visual highlight for delegates were ten of Adriana Bertini’s condom dresses. The Brazilian artist started creating fashions out of condoms to highlight the need to look at the prophylactics as basics, so that we would don them as easily as a pair of jeans. Some of her dresses use thousands of condoms; one wedding dress took almost 80,000 (and to think, some people hesitate over using just one!). The condoms that Bertini uses are either defective or past their best by date.
