Paper outfit by Estonian Academy of Arts students

Tutored by fashion designer Marit Ilison, a group of Estonian Academy of Arts students created different outfit crafted from paper. They were limited to using paper from a single company though they had free reign over colours and forms.

The outfit’s photo set styled by Ilison was used to create a calendar for paper brand Antalis. “I selected best 12 outfits from 24 participators, then I proposed the idea of a calendar to Antalis and they liked it,” said Ilison. “Later we selected and decided which photo would portray which month.”

The first two wintery pieces were made from white sheets, with January’s design comprising layers of circular sections with strips cut out. For the second, long tubes crossed the body to form a sculptural dress while shorter rolls were stacked into a headpiece.

Moving into Spring, floral shapes adorned outfits as geometric seed pods and then scrunched up pink petals. July’s offering saw the material edged in red, looped tightly back and forth to create giant ruffles similar to Elizabethan neck pieces.

Colours became more sober on the autumnal garments, particularly the collection of brown shapes built up around the body and extended over the head that looked like leaves ready to fall. For December reams of colourful ribbon-like strips splayed from the shoulders and curled up by the ends, with some tied in a bow at the neck.
