Hello Readers! This is a paper wedding dress I made back in uni last year.
The concept behind this dress was mixing the Eastern and the Western. I am a British born Chinese. My parents both are from China, Hong Kong and they moved to England, then later settled in Wales, where I was born.
So I was very fortunate to have deep understanding of the Eastern traditions as well as the Western.
One of the biggest tradition clashes are Weddings. Red is the colour for Chinese weddings, the bride wears a red dress with gold patterns and as for the Western side, it's obviously the traditional white dress.
The pattern I have used for my dress design is the scales from the famous Chinese Dragon, shaped like the wing from the Phoenix.
