Isabelle de Borchgrave, a Belgian artist, creates paper clothing based on historic & modern fashion. She often doesn't have the real item in front of her, instead she creates based on paintings & photographs.
Below are a bunch of photos that the Roommate & I took last weekend. As a reminder, you can always click on the photo to see the original (usually much larger) size.
|Did I mention I was fascinated by the lace?!|
|One of Empress Josephine's many dresses--classic Empire|
waist & extra-long train to indicate her status.
|Detail - Josephine's dress|
|Train from Empress Josephine's dress.|
|This purse was part of the above ensemble.|
|In my opinion, 1920s style doesn't look any better in paper!|
|Mrs. Post was married 4 times--in fact there was |
an exhibition of her wedding dresses last fall!
|This is one of her wedding dresses, recreated by de Borchgrave.|
