Hand-folded Paper Ballet Costumes by Melika Dez and Pauline Loctin
Paper fashion creations is not something new any more. We have seen sculptural paper wigs and all kinds of dresses made out of different paper like newspaper, toilet paper, and phone-book. Today we will show you the hand-folded paper ballet costume by Montreal-based artists Melika Dez and Pauline Loctin.
Named as “PLLE“, this project fuses Dez’s skills as a movement photographer with Loctin’s expertise in paper art, and showcases dancers around the world wearing hand-folded paper costumes. Loctin’s paper creations range from resembling traditional ballet tutus to intricately folded experimental shapes and Dez worked to situate her models in iconic settings from the streets of New York City to the Louvre Museum in Paris. You can see more from Loctin on Instagram and from Dez on Instagram.
