Artisan Makes Runway Fashion, From Paper

DYSART, Iowa – After years of being a costume designer, artist owner Julie McLaughlin turned to making paper, and paper clothing. McLaughlin owns McJulie studios in Dysart, but her work is shown around the world, including England, Hawaii, and South Korea. She makes scarves, shirts, and even a wedding dress.

"I wanted to make 3 dimensional objects," she said. "That was about 20 years ago. With my years as a costume designer it just seemed natural to blend the two worlds together."
