international paper dress contest
Second Prize, September 2014
Designer and maker
Güeñes, (Biscay) Spain.
Sewing this dress with paper made me realize that unconventional pieces provide both creative and self-improvement stimuli. The design is called Metamorphosis since it is a transformation. The metamorphosis is an irreversible transformation like this dress; from comic to clothing it’s possible, but impossible to reverse it. My brother passed away two years before I designed this piece using his old comics – creating something that was important to me from something that was important to him to honour his memory.
