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.
Notice the details in the pinstripe and printed tie.
Jacket, vest and pocket square all impeccable.
Functioning buttons, zippers and pockets…
Each jacket appears completely wearable, from functioning zippers, buttons and belts.
Heavy heeled boots worthy of wear.
Crazy? Well, there’s a white tuxedo straight jacket for you!
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.

Amazing! The crinkling of the paper really makes it look like leather. Truly an example of art and fashion crossing over.
