Paper dress makes headlines
Alana Springer, a finalist in the ongoing Queen’s College Star Strut Competition 2017, was the one to stand out with a creative dress made solely from newspapers.
Each week the finalists are charged with a particular challenge and the points earned, along with other factors, go toward the grand finale at the school on December 16. Each week a finalist is eliminated.
When asked why she chose a dress made of NATION newspapers, Alana explained that the challenge was to create a formal outfit from recycled material. She said she used newspaper because it was versatile and would make her dress look “puffy”.
The dress was made in two days by seamstress Patricia Farley.
The other finalists made outfits from items such as plastic bags, glossy magazines and cupcake paper. (KH)
