Pratt, paper & Ralph Pucci

Felt & Wire contributor Mieke ten Have, Paper Trail, went to the Ralph Pucci Gallery Nine in NYC last week to catch the latest exhibit, Pratt + Paper & Ralph Pucci. Pratt students were invited to design clothing — entirely out of paper — for Pucci’s Girl 2 mannequins. Mieke’s surreal photos capture the contrast between the edgy monochromatic fashions and the darkly dressed guests.

The Pratt Institute created the exhibit in collaboration with mannequin designer Ralph Pucci. It was the result of a semester-long study in texture and form that challenged fashion design, fine arts, industrial design and interior design students to create a textural study to dress female mannequins in paper. Twenty-four pieces were chosen for the exhibit. Judges included fashion designer Anna SuiBergdorf Goodman’s Linda Fargo, interior designer Vicente Wolf and others.
