Fashion designer makes clothes specifically for dead people

A 17-year-old Australian fashion designer is sending corpses into the afterlife with an environmentally-conscience wardrobe designed just for the dead. Pia Interlandi works with clients who are close to death to design personal shrouds and coverings, according to an interview with the Australian news service ABC News.

The clothing is made out of cottons and linens, which decompose naturally or don’t pollute as much as other materials during cremation. Her work is based on the idea that clothing people wear while they’re alive shouldn’t be the same as when they’re dead.
