Museum of Childhood Ethical Fashion Event

I've just shown some paper costumes at the Museum of Childhood for an ethical fashion event organised by The Papered Parlour. 
The skirt is made from stitched japanese paper, folded using a variation on the miura-ori fold, whilst the fan is a variation on the miura-ori fold, using cartridge paper that has also been stitched. 
I plan to make another costume with this folding technique but on a larger scale, using Tyvek instead of paper.
The photographs of dance performer Conny Seidler were taken by The Papered Parlour.
