Pleating Papers

I started off this dress by cutting and tightly pleating around one hundred magazine pages. I then layered and sewed them all onto a basic skirt block i had made in plain canvas. The top half is formed from lots of newspaper cones i made and fastened together. Also added extra detail in the back of the top with large pleated panels reaching to the collar.


  1. Hi there,
    I love your work and I will be attending the Dumpster Couture Fashion Show at the Highlight in Portsmouth in November in order to cover it for the university paper. I was wondering if it would be possible to set up an interview with you, either in person or by email that I could include with the feature?

    Many thanks,
    Kelsey Diggins
