When people talk about "disposable fashion" they're usually referring to H&M, Forever 21, and the other fast-fashion chains. But artist Annette Meyer takes the concept one step further. She makes clothes that are actually disposable - as in, they're made out of paper. Our favorite is her paper wedding dress project - she custom designs wedding dresses made out of the flour bags from different countries. As she explains it: "The dress plays with the paradox of the romantic dream, traditional femininity and extensive consumerism of the modern wedding. But despite hinting about the transitory nature of all things, including marriage, and the disposable nature of a dress that so much effort has been put into, the respect for the romantic vision is intact. " We say: it makes sense because you only wear it once, so it doesn't need to be durable. But couldn't it be sugar bags instead of flour sacks? -ALISON COOL
