Paper wedding gown

I’m not sure I understand this site –We make money, not art– but I thought to mention it thinking that it may interest the designer-artists in our crowd. Be sure to see Regine’s post on Computational Couture. She is also promoting an event known as Seamless so if you’re in Boston or plan to be on February 1st, you might want to check it out:

Seamless is a fashion event featuring innovative and experimental works in computational apparel design, interactive clothing, and technology-based fashion. each project [re]interprets the conceptual goal of a seamless relationship between technology and fashion. these are real clothes that inspire and provoke.

One of the shows producers provided errata for this post and adds that the event will be held at the Boston Museum of Science.

In a related vein from our friends at Treehugger comes this entry, Rachel Sleight Paper Wedding Dress (there’s a photo after the jump).

Rachel Sleight designed this paper wedding dress for “Design Mart”, an exhibit recently held at the London Design Museum. Inspired by the beauty of origami, the dress is also environmentally sound-it packs flat for shipping and can be recycled when all used up. Brilliant, since most wedding dresses-elaborate and expensive as they are–are a one-wear deal. It’s a bit farfetched, but we like the concept.
