Presentation Transcript

RRRIPP!! Paper Fashionexplores the history of paper as a clothing material; its social, cultural and historical significance.

Originated as research project into the use of paper in clothing, the exhibition’s main core is constituted by a spectacular selection of authentic disposable dresses of the 60s owned by ATOPOS, one of the most complete collections of this kind in existence.

As something in between a fashion item and an advertising medium, Paper Fashion was exploited by commercial companies and the media to promote their products.
Dresses’ simple 2-D shape was ideal for the bold graphic of product advertising and even for candidates’ logo during 1968 Presidential elections.
Artists also became interested in the phenomenon and used the A-line paper dress as a canvas for their creations, thus elevating paper garments to the status of works of art.
The exhibition features iconic examples from the Swinging Sixties such as the Souper Dress (1968) after Andy Warhol, the Universal Studios “Big Ones” dress of 1968 and the Poster Dresses by American graphic designer Harry Gordon.
Particular emphasis is given to the ephemeral, fragile, and humble nature of paper garments, juxtaposing contemporary creations with rare paper clothing from different cultures and historical periods.

In line with the sprit of recycling and “do it yourself” aspect attached to paper dresses in the 60s, contemporary artists and fashion designers are commissioned to work using duplicates from the collection.

Alongside historical and modern paper dresses the exhibition also presents new experimentation with paper-like materialsuch as Tyvek.
