Janna Coumoundouros is a fashion designer who uses automotive material in her designs. She has been commissioned 3 years in a row by Inteva Products to create one of a kind dresses for the North American International Auto Show's Charity Preview, held in Detroit, MI. The material can be found in many brands and cars and is what panels and sunroofs are made out of. She adds other elements of surprise such as shredded seat belts, vintage machine parts, and delicate beaded lace to create completely unique yet beautiful and wearable gowns.
Last year's dresses were featured in publications and websites all around the globe including USA Today, The Associated Press, ABC News, U.S. & World Report, and more. Last year they were part of a fashion exhibit at the Detroit Historical Museum alongside designs by Anna Sui, John Varvatos, Tracy Reese and other native Detroit designers.
