This week’s blog post comes from an idea from reader Amy.

Zoe Bradley creates oversize, highly crafted headpieces, dresses, and sets for advertising campaigns, editorials, catwalk shows, and window displays.  She uses traditional tailoring techniques but uses more conventional fabrics mixed in with luxury papers.

Primarily Zoe collaborates with luxury brands to create jaw-dropping installations to compliment the designer products and brand identity.  Her highly crafted fashion sculptures have been used in advertising and editorial worldwide.  Her signature material is Luxury paper, though she has been known to use fabric, wood, and recycled plastics.

Remember those paper dolls you had when you were 5?  They came dressed in only their undergarments and a whole wardrobe of paper separates you could mix and match to make that perfect outfit.

Well now that you have survived the terrible teens and come into your own, so should your idea of paper clothes.  Many artists have dabbled in sustainable clothing from coke cans, to stock ticker tape.  Though the most common of all waste is paper: newspapers, plain paper, college ruled paper, etc.  A few have managed to transform this common product into beautiful, red-carpet worthy pieces.
