Couture Paper Dress

To remake a couture dress entirely out of brown paper and similar products. This dress was based off of a liquid silver Thierry Mugler mermaid dress from 1987. It was constructed entirely from corrugated cardboard (to hold it;s shape), brown paper, and brown packing tape (to add shine in order to mimic the silver fabric).
