Paper Dresses: MT Washi Tape x Mintdesigns 「MT マスキングテープ x ミントデザインズ “紙ドレス”」

Japanese fashion brand Mintdesigns has teamed with MT masking tape company and together have created a wonderful exhibition that’s taking place in Creation Gallery G8 in Ginza (Ends September 11th)

The clothes designed by Mintdesigns were made on tracing paper and then adorned with Japanese Washi tape (Japanese paper) with different motifs from zigzag lines to Mintdesigns iconic girl’s silhouette. The result is a collection of 7 amazing items.
