From Goofy Streetwear Editorials to Newspaper Couture

 - Nov 20, 2012
Newspaper fashion is unconventional and takes an everyday object and thrusts it into the universe of creative reinterpretation.

Newspaper can be used literally as the sole material to create clothing and accessories. Some clever examples include entire couture collections consisting of elaborate gowns draped in paper. Other ingenious re-purposing is using the newspaper as a print in t-shirts, shorts and various other apparel. There are even eco-friendly alternatives for newspaper. A few examples are flip-flops and handbags that can be made entirely from recycled paper.

Newspapers and their prints are fabulous finds because they have a graphic quality that is immediately identifiable. The newspaper used can capture headlines, share interesting imagery or even demonstrate a political or fun play on words.

The pieces are attractive, bold and an inventive form of salvaging. So look out for the next headlines in newspaper fashion.
