The photo series titled Limited Paper by Iban Montero, a photographer based in Bilbao, Spain, showcases a slew of sophisticated ensembles fashioned out of paper. Seemingly impossible considering how chic they look, these are not the sculptural creations past artists and fashion designers have tackled. The retro-inspired looks are simple enough that any girl would want to wear them. Of course, they probably aren't that comfortable.
The gowns showcased in Limited Paper by Iban Montero were created by Ane Lopez. Made to look extra glamorous in the black and white images, she topped off the impressive designs with equally crafty hats and headpieces. Beauty artist perfected the vintage looks with sculpured hair and arched brows Ana Gorbea. Model Natalia Iturregui looks as though she belongs in a completely different era.
