This is what I found on FOXNEWS.COM:

Festivalgoers are known for making daring fashion decisions — but the new craze taking over Coachella may be the riskiest yet.

Instead of simply opting for round sunglasses, feathers, crop tops or graphic T-shirts, some music fans are slapping on stick-on bikinis made of metallic duct-tape as they hit the desert. The “stick-on” swimwear trend has gained attention this month, particularly after models sported colorful and patterned duct tape during the Ultra Festival in Miami.

Miami designer and photographer Joel Alvarez, dubbed the “King of Tape,” claims to have come up with the idea to use electrical tape while working with a model in 2008. After receiving positive feedback on the look, he launched an online shop called the Black Tape Project that promotes “alternative fashion” including varieties of metallic tape.

“Although this art project started exclusively with black electrical tape, I had begun to experiment with different techniques and new forms of adhesive tapes,” Alvarez explains in the website’s bio.

The designs also turned heads during New York Fashion Week and Miami Swim Week in 2018, though Alvarez says the trend has really taken off on Instagram in recent months.

Forgot your bikini for beach weekend? Designer Joel Alvarez has a creative solution for you: Just cover yourself with masking tape! — The Black Tape Project consists in applying the bikinis directly to models’ bodies, mixing and matching different tape colors and shapes to create the unique designs. — The designs do look pretty cool but are you willing to use this kind of trend bikini? * * #swimweartrend #bikini #bikinitape #miamiswimweek #swimweek #fashiontrend #stylish #outfitoftheday #lookbook #instastyle #fashiongram #fashionable #fashionblog #look #fashiondiaries #lookoftheday #fashionstyle #fashionpost #styleblogger #blacktapeproject #trend #fashionaddict #designer #trendy #whatiwore #swimwear #AliceMcLaughlinStar #AskAlice
