During my work as an ecodesigner in India, I once had to up cycle some used fabric. I invented a new material call”paper/fabric” . It is resistant and “sew-able” . For me, a wedding dress is the summon of the disposable/ buy-and-throw consumption society because it is worn only once.
So for the “one-time-use-dress” I have used paper /fabric. It was specially made with left overs cotton fabric and old lace I removed from old clothes of mine. The paper pulp is also made of textile rags, rejects of production. This is the first disposable , ecofriendly wedding dress in 100% re-used material. It is currently exhibited at : hochZEITEN !
