But first a little history:
In 1966, Scott Paper Co. introduced disposable clothing as a promotion gimmick with a sleeveless shift selling for $1.00. Scott sold 500,000 dresses in eight months, and the strong response had other manufacturers and designers joining the paper chase.
1960s "The Souper Dress" Andy Warhol Campbell's Soup Paper Dress
This is the 1960's Campbell's Soup dress that was inspired by the work of Andy Warhol. These were produced by Campbell's Soup as an effective advertising campaign when paper dresses were all the rage in the 60s. A classic example where fashion, art and industry intersect into one image. This A-line dress is printed with the Campbell's Soup red, black and white labels. At the back of the neckline is the original attached label that reads: "The Souper Dress/No Cleaning/ No Washing/ It's carefree fire resistant unless washed or cleaned/To refreshen, press lightly with warm iron/80% Cellulose, 20% Cotton".

SO this entry was originally inspired by the work of ELisabeth LeCourt. I don't know much about her, but I love what she creates! She's been making the blog rounds lately, but I wanted to post her work anyways to make sure that EVERYONE gets the chance to see her neat paper dresses.
