In this digital age, you’d be hard set to find anyone still using rubber bands. But despite the stretchy stuff’s near extinction, that doesn’t mean the forgotten office supply can’t find an inspired new use. Case in point, New York architect Margarita Mileva has found a brilliant new way to turn more than a handful of discarded rubber bands into incredible accessories and apparel . With her past works  already gaining cred in the fashion world, it’s been her recent unveil of the “RB Dress”  that’s really blown away both her peers and public. Inspired by painter Paul Klee and the Bauhaus  movement, Mileva painstakingly transformed 14,235 rubber bands into a cocktail-ready dress able to rival any piece of designer haute couture.
