Supermodel Kate Moss has come up with a unique way to create awareness about malaria,by modelling a one-of-a-kind dress made out of recycled mosquito nets.

The British beauty wore a William Tempest strapless dress designed for Sports Relief 2010 to support the cause of malaria eradication,and the garment will now be auctioned to raise funds for the same,reported Daily Mail online.

And if anyone can pull off synthetic fibres,it’s the 35-year-old Moss. The one-off piece,to be auctioned,has been sculptured and corseted in Tempest’s signature style with individual panels sewn together for a mosaic effect.

The insecticide-treated mosquito net is one of the easiest and most cost-effective methods of preventing the spread of malaria.

Taking time out to promote the cause,Moss said,”I was shocked to hear that one child dies from malaria in Africa every 30 seconds,that’s why I was happy to be involved in this important project for Sport Relief.”

“I’m really proud and excited to have designed a dress for Sport Relief with the serious message of highlighting the power of the humble mosquito net as a lifesaving tool against malaria,” said William Tempest.
