In an innovative fusion of fashion and public health, designer Gunnar Deatherage has taken a bold step to raise awareness about sexual health. Collaborating with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, Deatherage crafted a statement-making dress entirely from expired condoms.
The project, aimed at promoting sexual health awareness, was documented in a YouTube video that quickly went viral. “I made a dress out of condoms and it’s stunning,” read the caption of the video.
In the video, Deatherage transforms the condoms into floral shapes using pins and zip ties, then spray-painted them to add a touch of glamour. These embellishments were then carefully sewn onto the hem of a sleek black dress, resulting in a dress that wouldn’t look out of place on the Met Gala red carpet.

The response to the dress has been overwhelming. People were impressed by Deatherage’s talent and his commitment to raising awareness about sexual health. The project serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of safe sex practices and the ongoing fight against sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
