Some might argue that the newspaper has rendered itself irrelevant, but Manuel Minino's 'Paper Dolls' prove that newsprint is actually quite useful--as clothing.

These dresses are made entirely out of newsprint. Manuel Minino's 'Paper Dolls' showcases the talent of PineHills Creative Partners beautifully. Not only are the dresses immaculate, but the photography, hair and makeup in the set are equally eye-catching.

Implications - Paper has become the popular material of choice in various artistic mediums. Its manipulative nature and the fact that it's eco-friendly has allowed artists to make a statement on environmental awareness as well as cutting-edge pieces never thought possible. Businesses should explore the use of other materials in order to keep products fresh, new and exciting.
