i’ve always had a thing for the rich histories of fabrics and costume. little did i expect to be overwhelmed by the paper creations of isabelle de borchgrave. the tremendousness of her efforts has created a perfect illusion of the most royal of outfits… all in paper. i find the dichotomy an interesting twist on traditional fashion and costume exhibitions. although her creations are mostly historical, i cannot see why there may not be an exhibition of more recent fashion / fabric developments. i only need to imagine issey miyake’s pleats or kaffe fassett miraculously expressed in paper.
