Paper eyelashes at LFW


Spotted by the Stylus team in the LFW tents were some intricately cut paper eyelashes, launched in 2010 by Paperself and winner of the Norman-Copenhagen Best Product Award last year.

According to London-based Paperself designer Chunwei Liao, the eyelashes are inspired by the art of Chinese paper cutting and come in a variety of styles – peach blossom, horse, peony, deer and butterfly, clown and peacock.

Liao told London Fashion Week that each design has a symbolic meaning – Horses (Successful), Peonies (Fortune) and Peach blossoms (Love is coming). He said: "The lashes can be cut and combined in various ways for different occasions. We aim for the brand to be a piece of artistic jewellery for the eyes and to form a new trend in market."
