Paper runway at Atlanta airport

It’s Airport Art Fashion Week at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) and to celebrate the airport is unrolling “Paper Runway,” and exhibit that includes wearable clothing and accessories, all made from paper: ball gowns, business suits, stilettos, hats, vests and much more.

What kind of paper? Banana leaf fibers, recycled cotton rags and found objects, such as coffee filters.

The exhibit is presented by the airport and the Robert C. Williams Paper Museum, home to the world’s most extensive collection of paper and papermaking artifacts.
