Wow ! It's amazing to think that you made it in only a few days ! Congratulations
Paper art transports you in other worlds, it's such a great work, you can do almost everything you want...even do what fabrics can't afford you to realize!

I love your work.

this is why I had to prove to my teachers it is true [since I am not in a fashion school], with my first few smaller sculptures ;)
