Looking for that extraordinary wedding dress that would really hit it out of the ballpark? Why not try Asya and Dmitriy Kosin’s paper couture pieces. The artistic duo creates wearable paper art that includes anything from masks and Baroque wigs to intricate wedding dresses, that require nothing more than plain white sheets of paper.
“The paper allows for implementing quick and easy ideas that we imagine,” they explained in an interview with Wowcracy. “As far, we work mostly with wigs and costumes, it’s hard to imagine what other material could go so well.”
Rather than simple clothes or accessories, their creations are first and foremost works of art. “Textiles or other similar material would look too literally,” they say. “Our task is to ignore the literal reading of the suit as the practical thing and create an artistic thing.”
The versatility of white paper is used not only as a tool but also as a concept, with homages to Mongolian, African, Scythian, Venetian, Baroque, and Art nouveau aesthetics.
But would you dare rock these outfits to your actual wedding?
