As profiled by Rinne Allen and Lucy Allen Gillis in the recent issue of Selvedge Magazine 50 (Jan/Feb 2013), Amy Flurry and Nikki Nye, co-founders of the Atlanta-based company Paper-Cut Project, contributed sixteen paper wigs for the V&A’s recent exhibition Hollywood Costume. Given that notice of Isabelle de Borchgrave’s paper dresses exhibited in San Francisco in 2011 remains one of the most popular postings here at Enfilade, I would expect readers to be similarly interested in these paper hair pieces.
