Design Description

That outfit is made out of recycled paper twisted and folded to manipulate the style and shape that we wanted to showcase the optical illusion theme. We additionally used old wire and bed springs to re-enforce the paper. We drew out multiple optical illusion designs and painted them to give variation to the dress. We also wanted to make our outfit pop so we made 3D shapes decorated in optical illusion and sewed them to our dress. We wanted to make the headpiece a more delicate design, so we made origami flowers, painted them and added them to the headpiece.
