Today I came across the paper fashions of Elizabeth Lecourt, a French-born, London-based artist, who created a series of clothing pieces designed from maps called “Les Robes Geographiques”.

From them, I find myself wishing I had a topographical map dress from the Wasatch Mountains ….

Is there map clothing you would want created?
