Elisabeth Lecourt Transforms Old Maps Into Incredible Dresses

Elisabeth Lecourt Transforms Old Maps Into Incredible Dresses

French creative, Elisabeth Lecourt, has recently created a series titled Les robes géographiques, where the artist transforms maps dating back to the 14th century to incredible pieces of clothing. The maps, predominantly made into dresses use precise folds and exact cuts to communicate, are (according to Lecourt), “a portrait of people through their clothes, like a blue-print of their soul.”
