Amazing Paper Hats at the Annual ADCD Paper Fashion Show
Yes folks, I said a paper fashion show. It’s an annual fundraiser put on by The Art Directors Club of Denver (ADCD) and it is quite the occasion. The event features a giant sold out runway show, fabulous fashion statements made entirely of paper created by, 50 or more professional design teams. It has prizes, hoopla and lots of proceeds which go to help Downtown Aurora Visual Arts (DAVA), a local community organization that provides after-school arts programs for urban youth ages 3-17.
It’s no wonder people in Denver love this event. Who knew such marvelous, creative fashions could be made from paper ( ok well there’s just a bit of paper mache, but that counts as paper too). Not all the models are wearing hats, but those that are….. well all I can say is WOW!
These photos by Denver-based photographer, David Ingraham really convey the energy of the event. You can find the photos used in this post plus more on Dave’s flickr account at Stealthphotos’s photostream on flickr.
