Trash The Dress photography is a wellknown phenomenon in the USA since the late 90's.
"Trash the dress" is the art of destruction or deconstruction of a bride's wedding dress to create a new artwork that the bride would be proud of to display on her wall. [Wikipedia]
'Drown the Gown', 'Running of the Brides' and 'Rock The Frock' are similar names for these fine art photography projects, mixed with beauty, fashion and glamour.
