Most women have had the experience of buying a dress that only gets worn once. What if the fashions we wore could just be tossed into the recycling bin at the end of the evening?
That’s not exactly the point of the exhibit on now at the Oakridge Centre, but if you’ve ever blown your budget on a gown, you might want to consider hiring one of the student artists on display.
The designers, students in the Langara College Design Formation program have created detailed and exquisite paper gowns inspired by famous designers.
The students have used a variety of paper products such as brown wrapping paper, tissue and cardboard to craft their designs, which are displayed on mannequins in the East Galleria of the mall.
The exhibit, called Brown Paper Couture, is on display until March 14.
When: Until March 14, M-T 9:30-7, W-F 9:30-9, Sat. 9:30-7, Sun. 11-6
Cost: Exhibit is free
