Paper, Please!

Scrolling through Pinterest last weekend, I came across this groovy 1960s photo of Argentine actress Marcela Lopez Rey rocking a Rhett Butler dress. Clark Gable was the sexiest man to ever live and being a classic movie buff, I had to know which designer was responsible for such a delicious piece.

With the help of senior designer Larissa I discovered Ms. Rey was sporting a paper dress. Paper dresses were developed in the 1960s and part of pop culture for a hot second, between 1966-1967. Fascinated by retro fast-fashion, I embarked on a journey to my alma mater the Fashion Institute of Technology to research.

In step with the Pop sensibility of the 1960s, paper dresses reflected the attitude of their time—“Fashion could be simple, quick, democratic and disposable.”1 The fad was initiated by a Scott Paper Company promotional mail order offer of one dress for $1.

Paper dresses were made of “unpaper,” the Scott Company called Dura Weve, paper-napkin stock reinforced with rayon. The affordable, boldly printed, convenient garments instantly became popular. Quick production and printing made the paper dress an obvious canvas for pop art, advertising, and even presidential campaign posters.

To my disappointment, and despite scores of ladies who happily sported their eye-catching dresses, the trend did not last. According to “high fashion” disposable garment designer Elisa Daggs, “Materials weren’t coming through fast enough when the demand was hot. Most disposable fabrics were committed for industrial use and we fashion people had to take what we could get.”2 Daggs believed the primary use of disposable clothing was to give a woman the chance to try new fashion without a large investment.

I agree with Ms. Daggs. Today, a saucy Rhett Butler dress would cost a fortune and how many times are you likely to wear it? With modern technological advancements of recyclable fabrications, a paper garment comeback could solve the cost and time factors preventing women from purchasing high fashion fads…in my opinion.

Rock On!

Thanks to the Met’s Punk:Chaos to Couture show and a renewed interest in the grunge styles of the 1990s, the Fall 2013 runways were filled with rock and roll, punk and grunge-inspired looks. And as someone who came of age in the 90s, who spent many nights at punk and ska shows, (and at home making my own bondage pants), I couldn’t be more thrilled.

Hanky Panky BARE Totally Invisible at New York Fashion Week!

Fellow Senior Designer Makeda and I just had the thrill and privilege of not seeing our designs walk down the runway at Lincoln Center during New York Fashion Week.

Hanky Panky was the official thong of the Naeem Khan Spring 2014 runway presentation at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. So, while our Hanky Panky BARE thongs were up on the catwalk being worn by the models, they proved to be completely invisible  beneath the beautifully embroidered and beaded slinky sheer tulles and silks being presented to the buyers and press. There was no distracting VPL to detract from the beauty of the dresses.

Here are some photos from the show:

Hanky Panky BARE is a collection of invisible panties made from a unique second-skin microfiber knit from Italy that is ultra-lightweight and smooth, and disappears under the clingiest fashions without sacrificing the signature fit, quality and comfort synonymous with “Hanky Panky.” Shop the collection here.
