Cartography Couture

Designer Annex, of New Zealand, has designed these lovely frocks from vintage maps of the world. Unfortunately, you can’t wear the dress…but according to her website, you can “hang [it] on your wall and dream of new adventures”.  F*ck that, I’d absolutely try to put it on. Then, after I ripped it from doing something so stupid, I’d hang it on the wall (so you can’t see the rip, natch) and would then dream of other ways to get the damn dress on. Because these are way too cute to leave on a wall.

Here’s more from her website:

Travel the world or visit a favourite city with maps made from vintage printed maps. Hang on your wall and dream of new adventures or recount fond memories. Each dress is handmade and unique. Approx 90cm long and 60 cm wide.

Dresses are $195, bags $80, please email for more images
