WEDDING DRESS MADE OUT OF TEN ROLLS OF TOILET PAPER WINS CONTEST

Dear all

I have just come across this article that was in the Telegraph and Daily Mail today.   Considering what they are made out of I think they look amazing.  Is this the way forward in bridal fashion design?  Probably not with the unpredictable weather we are having at the moment, but still a fantastic concept and a very talented designer.

Finalists in the contest showed how to reduce wedding costs, while showcasing the versatility of the material in New York on Wednesday.

Among the entrants were gowns embroidered with pearls and crystals with figure-hugging designs.

Susan Brennan from Orchard Lake, Michigan was crowned the winner for the second year in a row, scooping the prize money of $2,012 (£1,293).

Ms Brennan’s dress was constructed out of 10 rolls of toilet paper, which she managed to make just a week.

“I wanted something really original, something young brides would want to wear,” the 26-year-old designer said.

“It has the high-low hems, so your shoes can show, really fun back. So really fun with the cutouts very modern and it’s my little bohemian cupcake.”

The contest, which is in its eighth year, was created by Cheap-Chic-Weddings.com which operates a money-saving website for prospective brides.

Update soon
