This Collection Selemon Susan Funke Created With Newspapers Is A Wonder

   

Selemon Susan Funke, a 23-year old fashion designer doesn’t only design clothes, she also works with any material, including paper, plastic, glass, and beads, to create beautiful pieces.

Her recent project, Newspaper Series Collection, according to her, was inspired by God.

“The inspiration for this collection came from God. It all started last month with me staring at a newspaper dress i made last year for the Nigeria’s Next Top Designer 2016 where i emerged Top 7 from 21 finalist. Immediately i got inspired to create a newspaper collection for 2017.
Then after the collection was made i started thinking of a venue for the photoshoot, again God inspired me to redesign my office into a newspaper studio. And finally God blessed me with a great team of creative like minds to help make this collection a success.”
