Isabelle de Borchgrave paper costumes
Born in 1946 in Brussels, Belgian artist and sculptor Isabelle de Borchgrave became best known for her colorful paintings and intricately painted paper sculptures. Following a visit to the Metropolitan Museum in New York in 1994, Isabelle dreamed of paper costumes. She worked on big collections, all in paper and trompe l’oeil, each of which set the scene for a very different world. “Papiers la Mode” (Paper in Fashion), the first, takes a fresh look at 300 years of fashion history from Elizabeth I to Coco Chanel. As for the “Ballets Russes”, they pay tribute to Serge de Diaghilev. Pablo Picasso, Leon Bakst, and Henri Matisse. In particular, all designed costumes for this ballet company, which set the world of the 20th century alight.
