PAPER COUTURE @ Coastal Currents Art Festival 2011
(Paper Couture created by Freya von Strapp at www.whiskillustration.co.uk)
PAPER COUTURE DISPLAY and PAPER HAT MAKING WORKSHOP as part of the Coastal Currents Art Festival September 2011, Hastings & St. Leonards-on-Sea
There is something immensely satisfying about creating fashion in paper ... it is instant, fragile but strangely sturdy at the same time ... your only enemy is the rain.
I once made myself a skirt with photocopies of a young smouldering Mick Jagger for a party ... it lasted the whole evening and even the long walk home ... only bother was to use the loo during the evening as I had to double-sided-stickytape myself in again each time ... well, darlings, no suffering is too small for STATEMENT FASHION!!!
I wonder how Mick Jagger paperknickers would feel .... xxx
