It might be one of the most simple and old-fashioned children’s activities, but playing with paper dolls is always fun. Young Italian artist Laura Poluzzi clearly thinks so. In fact, she’s made this bit of child’s play larger than life with her Get Your Dress project.
Head over to the project website and you can download, print and wear Laura’s dress designs. Giving everyone the possibility to play with adult-size outfits, Laura developed the idea as part of her graphic design studies at top Italian design school IED.
If you want to wear a new and trendy look but save some money in these difficult times, then Get Your Dress offers an interesting option. At the same time, as it makes us reflect on the at times undemocratic elitism of the fashion system and resonates with tales of paper bag princesses and paupers, Get Your Dress has a much deeper meaning as well.
