Paper Illusions PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Paper Illusions free pdf Belgian artist and designer Isabelle de Borchgrave has created exquisite paper dresses evoking high fashions from the courts of the Medici in the Renaissance to the legendary Fortuny silks of the early twentieth century. Their historical authenticity, combined with their startling realism, caused an overnight sensation when they were first shown in France in 1998. Since then, "Papiers a la mode", her dynamic, light-hearted collection, has travelled all over the world to critical and popular acclaim. "Paper Illusions" does full justice to De Borchgrave's magical workshop, where paper is cut, folded, and painted on the way to being transformed into shimmering visions of beautiful clothing and luxurious living. In Rene Stoeltie's vivid photographs, figures from the history of style seem to breathe in atmospheric rooms, while details of colour, pattern and form jump off the page. It is a publishing event of unprecedented creativity, wit and elegance.
