Hehey! My latest DIY MissMix magazine fashion tutorial is out. How to make AirMail inspired fashions with fabric printing supplies. Letters used to carry news and stories from around the world before e-mail was invented and the world became a very small place. Hussein Chalayan designed a folding envelope dress 10 years ago and since envelope styled pieces have been seen every now and then, the latest being the Fall 2009 coLlection by Daydream Nation. The AirMail print can be made to almost any plain colored piece of clothing, like a t-shirt or skirt. I made it to a white short sleeved shirt. Finnish tutorial can be found at MissMix magazine and the English (translations coming this evening) tutorial at Flickr.
Inspiration for Air Mail styled fashion projects:
Envelope dress and t-shirt by Daydream Nation, Fall 2009 collection. In a magazine and worn by Style Bubble.
Envelope jacket by Hussein Chalayan. Also worn by Björk on one of her album covers.
This is the original folding AirMail dress by Hussein Chalayan designed in 1999.
Envelope clutch by Paul Smith.
Envelope fashions donot have to be made on a white base. Black, gray and other colors work as well.
