Paper Couture

Here's a fashion show not to miss: the sixth annual Paper Couture exhibition, consisting of 24 paper-made gowns handcrafted by Langara College students studying design formation, will be on display at Vancouver's Oakridge Centre from April 24th to May 12th, 2019.

All of the dresses are made from a variety of recyclable white or brown paper, tissue, tapes, glue, spray paint, adhesives, paper twine, coffee filters, cardboard, string, thumbtacks and other raw materials, and are inspired by famous designers like Versace, Alexander McQueen, Paolo Sebastian, Dior, Gucci, Zhang Zhifeng for Ne Tiger and the late Karl Lagerfeld with Chanel.

Insider's tip: watch for a recreation of the infamous “Swan Dress” worn by Björk during the 73rd Academy Awards. —Vita Daily
