French Designer Creates Unique Dresses From Old Books And Other Unexpected Materials

It’s interesting to take a look back in history and see how fashion evolved during different periods of time. At first, people used animal skin, leaves of trees to cover their bodies. Then natural fibres were put into use. But still, the primary function of fashion was for people to protect their bodies from weather conditions. Then, as time passed by, things evolved and synthetic fibers were created. If we look at fashion now, its primary function has become self-expression.
