Millie Cockton creates paper designs that are certainly not for the meek, but perfect for the dramatic diva and divo. Her designs are inspired by old royalty and her paper pleated neckwear shows it.

The designs are admittedly more for stage than for street, but the fact that they are made from paper makes these Millie Cockton designs even more impressive. Take a look above.

Implications - The recent recession prompted budget-tight consumers to shop more sparingly, causing thrift stores to rise in popularity. This has led to a resurgence of retro and antique fashions, allowing customers to showcase their unique tastes. Companies can incorporate elements of antiquity into their product designs to appeal to these consumers.
