  Students at Hunan University of Technology recently held a special paper costume exhibition in Central China's Hunan province. All costumes were made of dozens of different paper materials such as wrapping paper, discarded books and newspapers, and even toilet-paper. As freshmen majoring in clothing and dress design, the students spent about two months designing and preparing for the show with 12 different categories such as cartoon, classic, and trendy. The exhibition aims to boost environmental protection awareness.
