Prêt-à-Papier - Trompe L'Oeil Gowns by Isabelle de Borchgrave

In Washington, DC this time, at Hillwood is another wonderful exhibition by Belgian born Isabelle de Borchgrave who recreates fabulous iconic historic fashion by simply crumpling bits of paper.....

The fashions date from the 17th to 20th centuries. The exhibition runs until 20 December 2012.

Above is the coronation robe of the Empress Josephine.

And above an 18th century gown in the style of Marie Antoinette.
