A newspaper bearing headlines about the economic slump is hardly the stuff of romance, but for Fairlight Hubbard and Amy M. Phillips, the power of the periodical extends far beyond its ability to inform. The creative twosome, who front Eye Management, a talent agency in Nashville, designed a series of vintage-inspired garments made completely from newspaper. Inspired by Hubbard’s own frugal upbringing—she began her artistic career using found materials like brown paper bags and leaves—“Extra, Extra Paper Doll” was executed by cutting, folding, and taping swathes of newsprint directly onto a model.

The clothes were made by cutting, folding, and taping swathes of newsprint directly onto a model.

At the close of the shoot, all the newspaper was gathered up and sent to a recycling plant, where they now await their second (or is that third?) coming.
