The ultimate in couture upcycling

I blame Blade Runner, but for some reason I have an attraction to the simplicity and beauty…and ritual…of origami. Apparently, so does artist Yuliya Kyrpo. She crafted the elegant bustier gown above strictly out of newspaper — but not just any newpsaper, mind you, but from 1,000 paper cranes carefully hand-folded from old recycled Metro newspapers. Featuring a flowing peacock train, the dress is a testament to not only painstaking hand craftsmanship, but also up-cycling. For now the Origami Dress is on display at, strangely, London’s Science Museum.
