Paper Flower Glory

These crowning glories (more below) must be the most talked out fashion accessory of this season. They were spotted over at the Chanel Spring & Summer 2009 Couture show & "the 65 different tiara designs were made with only 2 stacks of plain copy paper by the Japanese designer Katsuyo Kamo who is a master hairdresser & his small team." Look at the intricacy & details.... simply awe inspiring!

The pure white paper flower theme continued to the decoration of the venue for the show at Cambon-Capucines Pavilion in Paris. Over 7000 flowers were handmade in the span of 4800 hours to create an ethereal & dramatic effect. My hats off to Mr Karl Lagerfeld, the maestro behind Chanel!
