From the March 2011 issue of Madame magazine transpires a creative collection of brilliantly bold and beautifully constructed dresses made from tissue paper. Yes, we said tissue paper! Artist Hattie Newman and Matthew Brodie push the envelope when it comes to creativity and the photos,also shot by Mathew Brodie, capture the glamorous result perfectly. To view and learn more about the amazing collection be sure to check out their blog site.
“We really wanted to create something beautiful from a material that doesn’t normally lend itself to being draped and shaped on a living being, it had to be apparent that it was paper, but not because it looked (unsightly). For about a week we toiled in the studio creating designs with tissue and brown paper, a real Jack and Jill, seeing what would work and what wouldn’t, a lot more didn’t work than did, paper is not a malleable material, but eventually the idea showed itself to us and we had five dresses and props that we’ve make.”
