Wallpaper Dresses!

Monday, January 19, 2009

I still receive regular emails from some of my home/interior design contacts. I always love getting emails from Anne Martin, who handles publicity for several wallpaper lines. A recent email included links to these amazing dresses made out of York wallpaper. Here's what Anne had to say about the dresses:

Wallpaper has always been in step with fashion -- now more than ever – and York Wallcoverings drives the point home at Heimtextil. The centerpiece of York’s booth is five mannequins adorned in silhouettes ripped from current pages of Vogue and InStyle. The difference? Each dress is crafted from designer wallpaper, and hand-stitched with all the detail devoted to haute couture.

As many as 700 pieces of wallpaper comprise just one of these clever cut-out confections which, after their Heimtex debut, will make appearances at other shows stateside throughout the year.

I wish I were in Frankfurt to see them in person. Hopefully one of their "stateside" appearances will be in New York. They're pretty amazing aren't they? Here are links to dresses: Flocked Floral, Selene, Carla, Boccaccio and Linework Floral.
