PAPER DOLLS

NSCAD Wearable Art Show


In collaboration with fellow student and friend Hannah Newton, a collection of origami-inspired hand-made paper dresses were presented as part of the Nova Scotia College of Art + Design's 20th Annual Wearable Art Show. 

The collection was awarded the 2010 Juror's Prize.

To achieve specific effects, several different types of paper were used, including recycled cartridge, mylar (lasercut into an antique lace pattern), vellum, and cardstock. Each garment was inspired by a different persona, and crafted as such.


Completed: 2010
