Oh, I didn't make it, WhiteLinen! But I believe it is the paper flower technique. I'll see if I can find instructions online...

There are a number of interesting things on this site: http://www.simonewalsh.com/jewelry-objects/index.html

Made of tracing paper and silk thread

Here are the simplest instructions to make "Mexican" paper flowers. I imagine macrame was used to construct the necklace.

And here is an interesting link to lots of contemporary examples for using paper: http://www.trace-paper.com/index.htm

^Hm not sure Katie123... It's better to save pictures to your own computer
And then upload it to your own image host (like photobucket)
Same goes for SomethingElse

Thanks for the nice new posts guys
Maybe this thread's better in Art&Design :p Not quite a trend anyhow

thank you

the dvd on that show is amazing, we watched it in uni, the soundtrack's so dramatic, and when they tear the dresses in the end, it's so beautiful

Vassilis Zidianakis, a Greek designer, has collected more than 230 paper dresses from the 1960s, and curated a show called RRRRRIP! exclusively for paper clothes at the Benaki Museum in Athens in 2006. Apparently, it is slated to be at the Luxembourg Museum of Modern Art next year. You can see some of the work and an interview of Zidianakis at http://filepmotwary.blog.com/784434/.

I've not seen "MUDAM", the new museum in Luxembourg yet - here is the link http://www.luxembourg.co.uk/MUDAM/index.html. It looks like an interesting space.

I have only seen white paper clothes in the current trend, but I think the colors and finishing techniques used to make the little dresses in the 60s is worth seeing.

Unfortunately, the blog is in Japanese but the red dress is from last year.

Gotta see this amazing period gown made of paper: http://www.annettemeyer.com/fashion_...pages/f_99.htm and http://www.annettemeyer.com/fashion_...epts/index.htm.

My friend has a paper track jacket from American Apparel. It was very light and actually comfortable. He's had it for a few years now and it still looks pretty good.

Naturally, I already dumped my search history... but I'll try to find the Japanese blog again.

Gius - by finishing, I mean dying and image transfers. There is a dress with an image of Bob Dylan on it, for example. It's very hard to find images of the collection other than the links I already posted. Frustrating...

I can't find the Japanese blog! But I did find this wonderful site called MAU in New York! http://www.conceptualclothing.com/flash.html



The clothes under POST INDUSTRIAL FOLK WEAR are made of "breathable plastic paper, surplus materials and a bucket of paint". Just click each little colored box to see the four images they have posted online. Beautiful!

conceptualclothing.com

On an historical note, during the Edo period in Japan, paper coats and knickers were the norm. http://fuyuya.com/costumemuseum/costumehistory130.htm and http://fuyuya.com/costumemuseum/costumehistory131.htm

This is also kind of curious - destruction of paper clothes after a recent exhibit. Pity. http://www.indexaward.dk/2007/defaul...minationid=473

Big, beautiful images from the indexaward.dk link: http://www.indexaward.dk/2007/imageu...7_1_Image3.jpg and http://www.indexaward.dk/2007/imageu...7_1_Image1.jpg and http://www.indexaward.dk/2007/imageu...7_1_Image2.jpg
