Paper Gowns

It's one thing to create a beautiful gown with today's fabrics but to make a gown from paper and embellish it with such detail that the viewer has to look twice is amazing. This beautiful dress is by Isabelle de Borchgrave.

I love how the paper looks like a silk ikat print with tassels to match. This one again is by Isabella de Borchgrave

This gown sadly has no designer name...........I found it on Flickr . It seems to be made out of pleated sheet music. I love the subtlety of color.

And this, oh my gosh, from the window at Tiffany's in New York. The bustle cascading to the ground looks like it was done by a cake decorator gone mad.
