WATERLOO (KWWL) -

"Paper Couture" by Julie McLaughlin is on display Mar. 12 through June 6 at the Waterloo Center for the Arts.

McLaughlin has been making wearable paper sculptures since the early 1990s. 

Her interest in the art began when she wore her first paper dress over 50 years ago.

Her wearable paper garments have been shown on the runway at the Joenju Hanji International Paper Show in South Korea.

She graduated from the University of Northern Iowa and maintains a studio in Dysart.
