paper fashion

right now, at the fashion museum in antwerp, there is a nice exhibition going on about paper dresses. a certain kind of disposable paper dress was very popular in the sixties, and since the exhibition was so much fun, our graphic design teacher decided to give an assignment about it: we had about three weeks to create a basic paper dress around the theme 'blow up'.

my idea was to enlarge a simple lace pattern and cut it out, so you would get a see-through dress, creating nice effects of shapes and shadows. here is the finished dress:

oriental supermarket

we went to an oriental supermarket in antwerp to make sketches. the whole 'now what is this?'-factor was quite high, but i liked the colors and the newness.

and of course, i couldn't go away without a souvenir. now let's find a place to put this sticker!
