Although made entirely from paper and paint, these amazing dress recreations are not your normal "cut-n-paste" projects nor are they for your child's paper dolls. They were painstakingly created by Belgian artist Isabelle de Borchagrave inspired by real vintage dresses or paintings. The exhibit is currently on display at the Hillwood Estate collection (the former home of Marjorie Merriweather Post in Washington, DC).
YES, they are entirely of paper!
