The paper dress craze was short-lived in the late 1960s. A fashionable trend, they were also made for promotional purposes and served as a sartorial representation of the throw-away ethos of the period. This example, created by prominent children's designer Joseph Love, has a particularly exuberant, cheerful and artistic pattern, which is child-like but also sophisticated.
