My love for Origami goes way back, and lately the fashion scene has been blooming with exciting origami fashion pieces! Here is a small selection of amazing creations!
I will start with these 2 AMAZING and fun pieces, which I would love to have my self!
This piece is from Christian Dior, SS 2007 Haute Couture Collection.
If you see Yuki Hagino’s BA final collection, it’s pretty clear why she’s been receiving praise across the board. The London Evening Standard called her designs “heavenly”, whilst Elle UK say that she “provided one of the standout pieces of the show”. The Business of Fashion cherry picked her as one of the top six CSM designers to watch out for – and for good reason! Having previously studied architecture back in Japan, Yuki has ended her time in fashion knit by presenting a stunning collection of sculptural garments, contrasting hard origami pleats with the softness of cotton.

Irina Shaposhnikovas awesome collection inspired by geological formation of crystals and mineral. The Crystallographica collection consists of garments with strong geometrical folds and sharp facets which accentuate the anatomy of a female body. Delicate fabrics of wool, silk organza and cotton are fused with plastic and high-tech fabrics to further create striking, powerful silhouettes.

German designer Jule Waibel has created 25 of her folded paper dresses for fashion brand Bershka’s shop windows around the world.
