Project Blogway

The hour has arrived.



Whether you're finished or not,

"The Show Must Go On!"


The models have been prepped back stage. Stylists, photographers, press and designers have primped, pressed, ripped and torn for days now....


Although you could have caught me running with scissors the last two hours just to be on time. Notice the blog post hour below, but I "made it work".



Grab a seat and enjoy the show.




Remember the challenge was to create out of PAPER!




Designer names and their locations are listed below.




Those that are missing, drop Lisa or I a line and we will get you into the show.
Carry On...........

Seriously Terisa, this is just tooooooooooo unbelievable. You are incredible! Now how in the world did you do this? I wish I lived nearby so I could pop over to your art studio and watch you work. You should have been the fashion apprentice for the Carol Burnette show.

You should submit this to Somerset Studios. Wow. Thanks for adding my link. I just e-mailed Lisa, but I am not on hers yet. My post is up. A humble attempt, but I really thought this was such a fun challenge.

Thanks for the inspiration. Karen

I posted this comment in the wrong blog spot so will re-post. We saw the most gorgeous exhibit of the paper clothing of Isabelle de Borchgrave in Venice (I mistakenly put Florence, but my journal showed Venice). It was at the Fortuna museum in May and was amazing. Each tiny pleat, ruffle, button done in paper. Thanks for sharing the Project Blogway - I loved seeing all the entries.
