I am amazed by these paper dresses.
Yes, they are indeed made of paper, a specific material known as Tyvek, which is usually used for making envelopes. They are also machine-washable (gets softer with every wash) and totally recyclable.
Apart from paper dresses, I’m also itching to get my hands on the book “Green is the New Black” about the eco-wave that’s driving fashion trends today. There seems to be a number of eco-chic related books, including Eco-Chic: The Fashion Paradox on how the fashion industry is responding and changing in respond to environmental concerns. If you want a slightly more current-affairs discussion on about this “green” revolution, of course you can rely on Thomas Friedman’s Hot, Flat and Crowded.
As one of my best friend, Ms. F exclaims, in these days, “to be green is glorious”!
