Langara design students turn classic dresses into paper

If you head to the Oakridge Centre this week, you'll be able to see dresses designed by some of the fashion world's biggest brands. Versace Gucci and Chanel. Only these gowns are made by students in the Design Formation program at Langara College. And rather than silk, lace, or wool - they were working with not-so-traditional materials. The Early Edition's Polly Leger went behind the scenes before the gowns hit the runway.
