The RRRIPP!! Paper Fashion Exhibit, which was conceived by a cultural organization called ATOPOS, features a beautiful and eclectic collection of paper couture with a retro theme.
The collection runs the gamut of garments boasting a wide variety of dresses, skirts, tops and children's wear designed by famous and influential designers such as John Galliano, Martin Margiela, Gareth Pugh, Junya Watanabe, Hugo Boss and James Rosenquist.
One example of a showcased garment is a "Promotional paper dress of Universal Studios with 'pop' portraits of the Studios popular stars, USA 1968." This exquisite garment displays icons of the film industry such as Elizabeth Tailor, Shirley MacLaine, Paul Newman and many others who were at the zenith of their careers in the 1960’s.
The exhibition is presently touring and it will be at the Mudam Luxembourg from 10/11/2008 to 02/02/2009. Following that, RRRIPP!!! will be traveling to The ModeMuseum Province of Antwerp MoMu and then on to the Design Museum London.
