Ryan Novelline created this fairytale dress using, fittingly enough, from childrens books. The 22,000 square-inch skirt uses illustrations taken from classic fairytale stories and was stitched together with gold metallic thread. I cant even begin to imagine how hard this was to construct!
The bodice was shaped using the gold and silver spines from hardbacks. Not an exactly practical dress but it shows that you can always make something out of nothing.
