Gorgeous Topographic Gowns
Susan Stockwell Designs Dresses While Studying History

By: Ana Lopez (Star) Nov 12, 11

British history, colonialism and wars were usually dominated by men; however, Susan Stockwell wants to add a feminine touch to the English past by creating stunning gowns made from paper maps and money. These intellectual gowns contain more than 300 years of history, making them a museum piece and a fashionable encyclopedia. 

Stockwell beautifully glues together military and political maps to create dresses that mimic those worn by women during the 1870s. The drawing and colors of the atlas give these art pieces a mesmerizing pattern that she highlights through delicate folds and beautiful details. Additionally, her paper money outfits also look to honor the women of the time.

Susan Stockwell is known for her impressive artistic talent that has allowed her work to be exhibited around the globe in places like Europe, America, Australia and Asia.
