The very first paper dress was created by the Scott Paper Company in 1966 as a promotional tool. Since then, many have attempted the paper gown, including fashion designers Isaac Mizrahi, Hallie Erdahl and Gary Harvey, who all made stunning versions of it.

This isn’t Avex’s first paper bridal gown attempt; he did a similar project in 2010. Besides it being environmentally friendly, he loves the newspaper gown because it can be easily styled. When seen from afar, it exudes a nostalgic feel.

We wouldn’t suggest you try wearing this for your actual wedding day. But this is surely something you can explore for your bridal portrait session.

To us, real creativity is when someone uses ordinary things to create something extraordinary. Layer by layer, the team at Avex spent over 4 hours carefully putting together this gown… just for your viewing pleasure.
