      Paper Dress ~ It's highly unusual to go shopping for a dress made of paper but Kelly Murray, aka Jolis Paons, just might convince you to purchase her wearable Paper Dress. The meticulously constructed outfit is made entirely of the monochromatic pages of phonebooks. Even more impressive about this fashionable work, the artist says, "I pleated, stuck, sewed, and glued everything by hand."

      The first and the youngest is Jolis Paons. I don’t know much about her except she is 21, from the midwest, and was enrolled in a course called “Creative Process” when she created a dress that I, as an ex fashion and trend director, consider clothing as sculpture. Made completely from phone book paper, she pleated, pasted and sewed together this magnificent work of art.
