Paper Pieces

October 02, 2011

My favourite outfit from the shoot. 
Art director Matthew Brodie not only crafts his own props and set, he designs a whole collection of actual paper dresses. 

In his Madame magazine spread (March 2011) Matthew and his team, including a former pattern cutter and designer for John Galliano, created 5 “Paper Dresses” out of countless A3 sheets and a lot of perseverance. 

"We really wanted to create something beautiful from a material that doesn’t normally lend itself to being draped and shaped on a living being, it had to be apparent that it was paper, but not because it looked shit."
