Wow. Check out this dress made from the pages of a telephone book. I am fascinated by this sort of clothing-as-sculpture.

oooh for me this occupies the same beautiful, but impractical sphere as suede boots – lovely to covet, but totally unsuitable for a rainy climate!


This is amazing! I love when sculpture/art meets fashion and recycling. Magic. :)


melissa, that’s so funny. Just yesterday, I was eyeing a girl’s nice suede boots on the train and thinking about how quickly I would ruin them.

casey: I agree, the world needs more of this sort of thing.


I really like it… And as a dream : be abble to make same kind of dress…
