Greg Lauren Alteration

I attended the Gallery Opening Reception of ALTERATION by Greg Lauren this past weekend. It is an exhibit of his new works on paper – where art and sculpture meet fashion and clothing.

At first glances the pieces appear to be antique vintage clothing. Taking a second and more up close look, you notice the artistic detailing of each piece, and finally realize that they are made from paper. The pieces are made from Japanese craft paper, hand painted and hand sewn into life size garments. The pieces ranged from men’s suiting, trench coats, robes, ties and boots.

With his extreme attention to detail, Greg Lauren utilized wool, cotton, craft paper to create stunning works of art that realistic and approachable.

“Alteration” is on view at 8933 Beverly Blvd., in West Hollywood, through May 23, 2010.

Greg Lauren is the legendary fashion designer Ralph Lauren’s nephew.
