Sewing as Art – Paper Dresses

Another bit of sewing as art for your friday:

I saw this in the latest Urbis magazine (issue 64 – 2011) – It’s from New Zealand Fashion Week and these dresses, believe it or not, are made of Kleenex toilet paper! Aren’t they breathtaking?!

Fashion design has always been strong in New Zealand, think Collette Dinnigan, Kate Sylvesta, Trelise Cooper, Denise L’Estrange-Corbet – I’m sure you’ve heard of at least one of these wonderfully talented ladies no matter where you are in the world reading this (and if you haven’t go Google now).

Interestingly BurdaStyle also posted a paper fashion blog post today and it is equally amazing, check it out here.
