Carly Champagne runs a fashion design business out of her home in Tampa, Florida where she makes club-wear out of condoms such as purses and dresses. I discovered Carly on the Model Mayhem website where she goes by the alias "trajedi" describing herself as having a very "girl next door" kind of look, all natural, no tattoos. Carly writes to below.

I'm a full time fine art student at the University of South Florida mostly doing ceramic work and sculpture. Outside of school I consider fashion design to be my focus, but I put a lot of sculptural elements into my designs, such as vinyl and condoms amongst other things.

The condom thing has been a progressive idea that I started as a joke with a roommate, and built it into a business I run out of my home. I really like the idea that condoms can be seen in a fun way so young people will be more interested in carrying and using them, rather than seeing them as a scary sterile object in the same isle as home pregnancy tests and yeast infection treatments. People don't have a whole lot of excuses for not using condoms when they are carrying a purse made of them.

I have done trades with members of planned parenthood, lectures with safe sex organizations, and often will talk to Human Sexual Behavior classes at my university.
