I was shopping with my best friend, Elana, in Banana Republic the other day and b-lined for what I thought was a gorgeous dress. She looked at me and started laughing, Anne, that looks like a roll of wallpaper. She was right–but that’s exactly what I loved about it. I often look at the graphic florals and soft geometrics of home textiles and papers and think, I want that in a size four! I guess you have to be a home nerd to understand but for those of you that are…you’ll love this display by York Wallcoverings.
It’s a sneak peak of the display heading to Heimtextil, the international trade fair for home and contract textiles taking place from January 14-17th in Frankfurt, Germany. Each dress (silhouettes ripped from current pages of Vogue and InStyle) is crafted from designer wallpaper, and hand-stitched with all the detail devoted to haute couture. It took as many as 700 pieces of wallpaper make up one dress. I would definitely wear the black and white floral, wallpaper pattern or not.
