Paper or Plastic?

This just makes me happy. A paper cut gown by Mister Rob Ryan. I like the idea of a whole narrative that could play out on this dress.

Which reminded me of this gorgeous plastic lace wedding dress by Deborah Milner I spotted in the May issue of ID(where you can see better images). The "lace" is made by ironing plastic bags to melt and fuse in to large sheets. Hmm. . .

Speaking of unusual dresses, this is a piece I made a few years ago, Lisa Dwelling. I apologize for the image quality, the slide is about sixth generation, yikes. The piece is based on the idea of dress as shelter and inspired by African Musgum houses. Theirs are made of clay and look like giant textured beehives, mine is made of the fruit petals of a Chinese Parasol Tree.

Thank you! I wish you could too. It's very fragile and a little decayed these days, but still beautiful.
