When director Stephan Elliott approached Tim Chappel about creating a salsa-inspired dress, he collaborated with co-designer Lizzy Gardiner to use recycled materials for the sequined corset and fluorescent green lycra skirt. At the time no one could predict that the image of Hugo Weaving as Mitzi Del Bra, with her green skirts blowing in the wind, would ultimately capture the film's glamour and become a key visual motif.

In this scene from The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, Mitzi dons a green sequined dress and dances in the desert after the beloved 'Priscilla' bus breaks down.
