George Romney Paper Dress, ca. 1968
Digital photograph of dress on screen-printed paper. After the Scott Paper Company created the first paper dress as part of a promotional campaign, other designers began to experiment with disposable fashion. The two-dimensional form served as the perfect surface for printing images like this one. The temporary nature of the garment makes perfect sense for clothing that would only be worn briefly. George Romney served as the governor of Michigan before unsuccessfully running for President in 1968.
