At New York Fashion Week, models only walked the runway in TAPE.

Tape King Joel Alvarez founded fashion brand Black Tape Project back in 2008 and typically uses a wide range of different tapes, including mirrored and metallic ones, to create his bold designs.

The Miami-based designer, who claims to use “the only skin-safe body art tape” in his designs, has created a host of minimalist looks for Sunday’s runway.

Stunning models who walked the runway paired bold looks with high platform sandals and matching high boots.

Alvarez sells his tape online, starting at $9.99 for plain black tape and $29.99 for more colorful rolls.

On the Black Tape Project website, Alvarez explains how his brand came about after he decided to use tape on a model once more than a decade ago.

He says: “One day in 2008, I was a rookie photographer working with a model who suggested I use duct tape for a final look.

“Honestly, I had no idea why she needed it, but to make her happy, I tried to use this tape as a wardrobe.

“In fact, I just wrapped it with black duct tape!”  Keep in mind that when I finished it looked like two Christmas hams wrapped in rubber bands!  I would never have shown you these images, but it sparked an idea in my head,” the designer concluded.
