Paper as Fashion

As a merchant rep, it’s a given to have a love of all things paper. So imagine my delight when I saw that Chanel featured paper accessories as part of their Spring Couture ’09 Show in Paris last month.

According to the Chanel website, there were 7,000 handmade paper flowers, which took a total of 4,800 hours of work to assemble and 4,000 square meters of paper were needed to create these ephemeral sculptures - and I thought making a perfect bound dummy was difficult.
