These are some amazing Paper Wigs by Amy Flurry and Nikki Salk of the Paper Cut Project based in Atlanta, Georgia. They are windows displays in the Jeffrey stores and The Hudson Bay Company in Toronto. Each one is so meticulously styled and is just beautiful! I would totally wear one on one those days where I’m in between dye jobs, if I could. Having red hair is such a pain in the arse sometimes.  This would go great with this paper dress or this paper dress. Wow- is all I can say!!

Sponsored by Coutts ( no, it’s not a nursing home– it’s a fancy bank in the UK) designer Louise Goldin made a dress entirely from paper for London Fashion Week. At first I thought maybe the office did a recycling program with scrap paper, but I was wrong. There are no numbers and graphs on the either side! Check out this video to see how it was done in case you want to polish up on your paper dress making. I have to say I love how the video is shot, as if invisible elves were constructing it. Such a gorgeous dress… too bad it rips if you move.

Japanese Brazilian designer Jum Nakao was featured in the  Paper Fashion exhibition at the MoMu in Antwerp with these brilliant creations made COMPLETELY out of paper. These are so gorgeous! But not really wearable. They look very Chanel, actually. Unfortunately, after the runway show, the models ripped off the designs shredding them to pieces. See the video below…

That’s just a shame, isn’t?!

Paper dresses

   

The photos above have one thing in common- they are all made of Paper. I think it’s pretty amazing since paper is so hard to keep from ripping under these circumstances. The first photo is made of toilet paper, which reminds me that I need to buy some… the second photo is made from pages from a phone book, the third is a custom printed paper and the last photo is made entirely of maps of the British Isle. I have a dress made of Tyvec (the fedex envelope material) and it is the coolest! I think Tyvec is the closest to getting that paper look. Surprisingly, it’s pretty durable.
