And You Thought Origami Was Impressive: Paper Fashions By Zoe Bradley
Artist Zoe Bradley creates stunning headpieces, dresses, sets and installations crafted from various papers. That's right.... paper. And boxes, and sometimes even plastic spoons. But her 'forte' is her signature use of various "luxury" papers in a sculptural way.
She also does windows. And by that, I mean the windows of some of the most prestigious stores around; Harrods, Selfridges, Liberty, and Smythson in London, Missoni in Italy, Brown Thomas of Dublin and more.
A graduate of Middlesex University she went to work for Alexander McQueen where she honed her craft that later became her trademark.
Below are some of her spectacularly designed dresses and headpieces that have appeared in editorial work and advertising campaigns.
And her headpieces:

And of course, her head-turning window displays:
Some of her fashions have even been on the runway, as in these two from the Michiko Show:
