Today, we are inspired by something unique, different and quirky.
Invitation To Inspiration presents a flamboyant series of photos made by Christian Tagliavini.
This Swiss-Italian master of photography rolled up his sleeves and recreated three specific periods in fashion history carved in colorful cardboard.
Even though on the verge of grotesque, Tagliavini has managed to produce a praise worthy pieces of fashion.

Fashion of the 50s in Tagliavini`s interpretation
The play of the one dimensional costumes and live models who pose behind the cardboard outfits proves Tagliavini to be a true artistic genius.
Tagliavini`s one man show is amazing and amusing at the same time.
He has designed the costumes, cut them in cardboard and stood behind the camera which has resulted in DAME DI CARTONE series of portraits.
Character, structure, texture, originality, ingenuity, craftsmanship...
Tagliavini`s got it all!
