Pretty in Paper: Isabelle de Borchgrave’s Elaborate Paper Fashions Arrive in SF

Fashion and art collide in Pulp Fashion: The Art of Isabelle de Borchgrave, opening this weekend at the Legion of Honor and on view through June 5. The first major U.S. exhibition of the Belgian artist’s stunning paper gowns, historic costumes and couture looks inspired by the work of fashion icons such as Coco Chanel and Christian Dior features over 60 tromp l’oeil creations constructed entirely of paper crumpled, pleated, braided, painted and otherwise manipulated to mimic textiles and wearable accessory objects.
