While there are many things you can do with an electronic book, forget making a dress out of one… or even 50. An e-book dress would be a little too ephemeral, even for Fashion Week.
The book print dress shown is from Maria Cornejo’s Fall/Winter 2011 Ready to Wear Collection. And the rest of the collection? “Unfortunately unremarkable,” opines Broke and Beautiful. “Many shapeless leather things in grey cognac and putty colors.” But the book print? It “alone deserves its own post -- if not own blog.”
You heard it here (well… and there). Though the book world fumes and fumbles over the future of the printed word, the fashion world says, “Bring it!”
