Sculpted Paper Dresses - Georgia Karanika-Karaindrou

I was delighted to be contacted by Georgia Karanika-Karaindrou (Facebook) about the ethereal dresses and fashion accessories she creates. Many are currently on exhibit in Kolonaki, a neighborhood in central Athens, Greece.

Titled Report to Work, the paper sculptures can be seen at The Gallery Skoufa through April 27.

Georgia doesn't speak English and I don't speak Greek, but thanks to translation assistance, I learned that she studied fashion design and has much experience in making clothes.

Georgia's latest work is this collection of paper garments with fabric accents for which she used techniques gained from sewing and sculptural studies.

She uses many different materials including oil and tempera paints to enhance the dresses and hats. Some are adorned with flowers, butterflies, feathers, and kites.

The beautifully lit photographs convey movement, allowing Georgia's original creations to spring to life.
