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.
