A Cut Above
A labor of love for two southern belles, The Paper-Cut Project has taken the style scene by storm
by Abi Slone
Since their first show in 2010, Atlanta-based Paper-Cut-Project (aka Amy Flurry and Nikki Salk) has seen its creations everywhere – from the boutique windows at Jeffrey in New York City, to the pages of Vogue Italia. Why do they produce the intricate labours of love? “We like our work to transport...to make the audience forget what we’re not supposed to be able to do with paper.”
Time it takes to make a wig?
“Between 30 and 80 hours.”
“Sturdy Bristol paper, glue and good sharp blades.”
Dream creative collaborators?
“Paris-based Maison Michel. And Iris Van Herpen and Sarah Burton. They operate in the realm of fantasy that our work and ideas would be at home in.”
