Our first project is to design and make an outfit using only newspapers and magazines... From what i've seen most people seem to be going the Lady Gaga's Monsters Ball tour / Beyonce's Sahsa Fierce tour route = Think very structured, plenty of asymmetry etc.
This all looks good but I wanna do something different with mine, got a book out from the library called 'Pornogami'... Yep you read it right, using the paper folding techniques of origami the book instructs you how to construct paper vajayjays and other private parts... Which gave me the idea of using only page 3 to create my garments in controversial shapes...
Hmm, I realise I sound like an absolute perve right now, but if I can push the idea through I think it could be great.
Watch this space, i'll post my progress!
I leave you with one of my favourite mag covers of all time... Beth Ditto for Love Magazine back in 2009. xx
