Many fashion designers create wedding dresses from silk, satin or organza, but it takes a special talent to craft a beautiful garment from toilet paper.
St. Louis designer Ashley Ulicni has done just that. The 32-year-old Ballwin resident created an ornate, full-sized wedding dress from rolls and rolls of toilet tissue for the 2017 Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest presented by Cheap Chic Weddings and Quilted Northern®. Now she may be rewarded for it — Ulicni's dress has been selected as one of the top ten fan favorites, putting her in the running for a five-figure prize."I rarely win anything," says Ulicni. "Winning this would mean more than anything else could. It would probably be the biggest accomplishment of my life."
