Fashion is ever changing, but so many aspects of fashion tend to stay the same over the years. French clothing designer Sylvie Facon is changing things up big time with her designer gowns.
From little black dresses to wedding gowns, Facon creates a range of unique dresses, including a dress made out of book spines. Each dress offers a surprising twist on traditional fashion.
The only way to create dresses of this caliber is to pair great attention to detail with unmatched creativity.
You can practically hear the stories forming in your mind as you look through her daring works of art.
If you’re a book lover, you’ll fall head over heels for her collection of dresses made from the spines and pages of real books. Not only are Facon’s dresses fashioned from books, but in addition, each dress looks like a fairytale plucked straight from the pages of the world’s favorite classic novels.
In proof, this stunning creation is made from book spines:
“Sylvie Facon is above all a passionate, perfectionist technician. Attentive to the guidelines given by Haute Couture, in love with beautiful fabrics, she works mainly for women,” reads Facon’s bio on her website.
A closer look at the book spine dress shows impeccable detailing.
Facon relies on a variety of materials to craft dresses including porcelain, paint, and rattan. No matter what she’s working on, she always adds a little “’crazy’ and amazing, a world of her own and so special.”

Her work is the ideal combination of craftsmanship and creativity.
This ‘Old Town’ dress was crafted from a mix of paint and lace. You can’t stop looking at it – with each glance you pick up on new details. Now that’s what you call a conversation piece in dress form.
Facon’s work has been featured on many instances, including the Museum of the Best Workers of France in Bourges, Museum of the Lace of Caudry, Museum of Porcelain in Bourges, and the Museum of Fine Arts of Orleans, among others.

I think every violinist needs this dress. Even if you don’t play the violin, it’s the perfect dress for a night out to the symphony.
You can see the details include sheets of musical notes – as if the intricate violin wasn’t detail enough!
My only question is – can you actually play the violin on the dress?
Not ready to wear something as bold as a dress made from books? Facon designs little black dresses too. Even her little black dresses are special creations that take the standard black dress to the next level.
The inspiration for Facon’s unique take on the classic little black dress: “Deep blacks, warm blacks, on colorful bases.”
With over 38,000 followers on Instagram, Facon’s work is quickly gaining popularity. Especially with the addition of her amazing book-inspired dresses.
