The process of making a paper dress is very special to me. It was especially a treat to design these dresses because of the ways that I was able to showcase them. This first butterfly dress was created for a lupus fundraising event for Molly’s Fund. The butterfly is symbolic to their logo. The Dahlia dress was created for a runway show here in Portland.
