It seems that even designers are becoming resourceful as the economy takes a nose dive.

Margiela proves that he can still craft garbage into gold, using recycled materials of course. The Belgian designer turned plastic straws into a tiger that graces the back of a nude colored leather top, hundreds of shoelaces were made into a saucy fringe dress and an adorable snow white blazer was sculpted from paper towels. His Artisanal pieces are all so well crafted, they look runway and museum ready.

Here are the looks from MM's Artisanal Spring 2009. Quite remarkable.
