This one's actually made from pages out of a telephone book.

Creative people rock.

Now I know this is surely an idea older than the Roman Empire (yes it is, and don't call me Shirley), but I wanted to share with you a collection of garments created entirely out of newspaper by some very imaginative designers. Feel free to contribute to the visual goodness if you have any other suggestions (a.k.a. links, images, entire sites devoted to this kind of genius?)

First three are the highest scorers on last season's Project Runway, when they had the designers create a look using only newspaper, glue and dye (if they chose to color the newspaper).
Irina Shabayeva

Gordana Gehlhausen

Christopher Straub

EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT IT! (yeah... i know...)


  1. extremely cool. id be afraid to tear everything it up when putting it on. but very cool.

  2. How on earth do they manage to imagine these marvels, cut them, put them together, put them on a model and still make them look fantastic without tears? . and the placement of color by Israac Mizrahi is incredible. LOVE this!
