Intricate and Fascinating: Amy Flurry and Nikki Nye's Paper Wigs for the Victoria & Albert museum

Paper-Cut-Project is a company based in Atlanta, and co-founded in 2010 by Amy Flurry with Nikki Nye. Flurry and Nye make paper styling props for high end fashion productions and their clients include Hermes, Cartier, Kate Spade, Christies, The Bay and the Cartoon Network.

Amy Flurry and Nikki Nye were commissioned a 16-piece collection of paper wigs for the Victoria & Albert museum's "Hollywood Costume" show that is currently on exhibit in London.

" We were approached last summer by the exhibit's curator, Deborah Landis, who wanted the hair to be representative of that particular character, but interpreted in a way that would elevate the overall experience for the viewer.
The draw to the wigs is a subtle one, but when they do catch your eye, you linger longer, you make out that this minimalist detail was painstakingly made in paper! "

It took the artist duo Flurry and Nye a little more than two months to create 16 exquisite paper wigs.
