It may seem impractical but paper is making its way to the fashion runway
Throwaway fashion is on the runway of the 21st century and the new millennium. Paper products are making a splash in the fashion world. Thats right paper clothes are making a comeback.
The paper clothes trend actually started in the 60s when Pop Art was in full swing. Artist James Rosenquit wore a paper suit to many fashionable functions. The fashion is back and Rosenquit is busy designing again.
Last year, fashion designer Hugo Boss asked Rosenquit to redesign the paper suit 90s style. He did, and 50 suits were auctioned for charity after being worn by Dennis Hopper and Samuel L. Jackson. In fact, one of the paper suits is now permanently exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
You can buy a variety of paper clothes. Choose from a creased paper shirt
(John Rocha), paper Aertex top (Krizia World), paper look jacket (Uth) or a
banana fiber paper hat (Paul Smith Men). In London, you can
even buy it in Top Shop: Hussein Chalayan has created an affordable range
for TS Design, including a paper shift dress, Velcro-fastening trousers,
shirt and even a matching paper bag purse.
