paper into garment

Alexandra Verschueren 2010 collection.
A collection inspired by Thomas Damand and the world of paper.

Tell us more about the fabrics and treatments you used?
" I actually only used fabrics, like felted wool (with polyester), cottons that I starched and strengthened with fusing and tyvek. I really tried treating the fabric, as if it would be real paper, by manually pleating, folding, cutting the fabric and drawing on it. " Alexandra Verschueren.
