Tiffany Freeze, who is working toward a Bachelor of Arts in Fashion Design from The Art Institute of Colorado, recently participated in the 14th Annual Paper Fashion Show. Tiffany is a United States Army veteran and created a unique design titled “Soldier for Life.” Her design is was inspired by her desire to address the important topic of veteran suicide.

Each dress in the show was created from no more than 32 pieces of paper.          

According to the article, Freeze selected fellow veteran and Veterans Affairs Denver employee Sarah Alder to wear the dress on the runway. “Alder stood for nine grueling hours as the dress was applied to her body in small sections with glue, and at the waist. She brought her tall stature, spiky hair and combat boots to the show.”

Tiffany’s work is now featured on the web site of United States Department of Veterans Affairs. Her dress will be placed on display at the new Rocky Mountain Regional Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Aurora, Colorado.
