Pulp Fashion | Isabelle de Borchgrave

The blogosphere is abuzz about the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco's exhibition called Pulp Fashion. And, with good reason! It's an amazing show of the work of Belgian artist Isabelle de Borchgrave. Her intricate work in paper artistry celebrates 300 years of the history of costume—from the Renaissance finery of the Medici family and gowns worn by Elizabeth I and Marie-Antoinette to the fashion of the grand couturiers Frederick Worth, Paul Poiret, Christian Dior and Coco Chanel. Originally inspired by a trip to the Metropolitan Museum in New York in 1994, Isabelle pleats, paints and transforms her paper garments into replicas of the most beautiful sartorial creations imaginable. Pulp Fashion is on display now through June 5th. You can see more of Isabelle de Borchgrave's Medicis here.
