From discarded chewing gum wrappers to convenience store receipts—her creations "challenge" our preconceived notions of what can be considered 'precious'.
According to Paxton, her collection "intends to comment on the throwaway culture that’s prevalent in Western society, challenging both the viewer and the wearer to question their relationship with societies gluttonous excess and waste."
