Wellington, Apr 20 : A woman from Christchurch has won the award for the most stunning wedding dress - made from toilet paper - which was strutted on the red carpet on Christchurch's Victoria Street.
Vicky Heir won a promotional competition with her Cottonsofts gown, beating seven other designers.
Expo manager Peta-Marie McLeod said the designers were allowed to use two four-packs of the double length Cottonsofts toilet tissue - about 16 normal rolls - to make their dresses.
"Most dresses took about eight to 10 rolls. They were absolutely stunning. It was just amazing -- the amount of effort some put in. They looked like the real thing," Stuff.co.nz quoted McLeod, as saying. The competition was something fun and light-hearted to promote the Wedding Expo, which was held at the Christchurch Convention Centre on April 20.
