In 1967, the American graphic artist Harry Gordon designed a series of mod-pop advertisement paper ‘poster dresses’. These a-line dresses comprised five prints – ‘Mystic Eye’, ‘Giant Rocket’, ‘Rose’, ‘Pussy Cat’ and ‘Hand’. Fabricated from screen-printed tissue, wood pulp and rayon mesh, the dress came with the proclamation: ‘Toughness is woven into the non-woven fabric for long, l-o-n-g wear, and should you tire (which is doubtful), just cut open all the seams and hang it on your wall as a mammoth poster.’ Attended by a Cardboard package.
