Eighteen-year-old art student Hannah Sykes isn’t one to color within the lines. And boy, has it paid off. The budding designer, who unveiled a gleaming couture-inspired bustier made from repurposed drink cans, snagged first prize at a competition that encourages canned-beverage aficionados to get creative with their empties. But that’s not all she wrote (or, in Sykes’s case, drank): The bustier was later auctioned online to benefit The Art Fund, a leading U.K. charity that buys, saves, and shows great works of art. Can you dig it?
