Wedding Gowns Straight From Your Favourite Novel
Just when you think you’ve seen it all, the fashion world throws a spanner in the works and presents something so original and different that the concept really is quite unbelievable. Today we present wedding dresses made of, wait for it, paper. Sit back ladies, they really are a magical work of art.
This wonderful idea came to fruition in the Lancaster ‘Litfest’ in October 2011. Jennifer Prichard Couchman dreamed up a “word dress” and created her first gown 2,500 pages of a novel by English author, Angela Carter. In three days she folded the pages, used paper mache and many other ingenious techniques to create a spectacular dress. The writer, Claire Massey instantly fell in love with the dress and wore it without hesitation while presenting one of her stories.
Other designers were seduced by the ultra creative idea and they too wanted to create a dress using words and prints as seen in the video.
Are you an ecologically minded bride-to-be? Do you love using recycled goods to create something new and beautiful? Or, do you simply adore words and literature? Remember, this idea is incredibly accessible and there are countless ‘how-to…’ videos on-line.
