Matthew Brodie’s Paper Dress

In my hunt for geometric clothing, i have come across these amazing!!! amazing designs in a Madame magazine spread. The collection, entitled “Paper Dresses” is designed by Matthew Brodie who not only crafts his own props and set, he designs a whole collection of actual paper dresses, as well.

“For about a week we toiled in the studio creating designs with tissue and brown paper, a real Jack and Jill, seeing what would work and what wouldn’t, a lot more didn’t work than did, paper is not a malleable material, but eventually the idea showed itself to us and we had five dresses and props that we’d make.”

“We really wanted to create something beautiful from a material that doesn’t normally lend itself to being draped and shaped on a living being, it had to be apparent that it was paper, but not because it looked shit.”
