With the amount of rain we’ve had recently, a dress made entirely of paper sounds like a soggy disaster waiting to happen. But luckily, this one’s staying indoors!
The largest paper couture dress to ever be showcased in Australia has popped up Adelaide’s Rundle Place.
On show to celebrate the arrival of the festive season, the dress is the creation of globally renowned sculptural artist, London-based Zoe Bradley.
Using techniques such as die cutting, laser cutting, sculpting and hand folded origami, Zoe creates awe-inspiring works of paper art with striking attention to detail.
She is renowned for her window installations, sculptures, and clothes, and has created impressive paper designs for some of the world’s most coveted brands including Louis Vuitton, Tiffany and Co, Christian Louboutin, Dior, Harrods and Selfridges.
Just for Adelaide, Zoe has created a striking giant red and white couture dress, made entirely of paper. Here’s her creation in all its glory:
“I’ve always considered it a great opportunity to take contemporary paper art installations outside the usual gallery walls to a
wider audience,” says Zoe.
“My work has taken me all over the world and it has been so rewarding to see how my showpieces fit into different environments and cultures. I am excited to be coming to Australia on behalf of Rundle Place and creating something special for the people of Adelaide, just in time for Christmas.”
Zoe Bradley’s creation is on display at Rundle Place until December 28.
