Fashion Journal – Asheville Art Museum: Groovy Garb

In 1967 one of the biggest fads around was the paper dress.  One of the largest makers of the paper dress was located in Asheville, Mars of Asheville.  This exhibit at the Asheville Art Museum showcases the work that was done there over a period of about three years.  This was, after all, a fad, and unfortunately for Mars, the fad didn’t last very long.


To learn more about paper dresses, you should get a copy of Jonathan Walford’s great little book, Ready to Tear.
