Fashionista Origami

Posted in artwork, creativity, designer, funk by fashionista514 on October 17, 2009
Why is origami so indefinately cool? Why is it even more appealling and insane when transformed into fashion? It seems to be one of those things that holds infinite amount of mystery and endless simplistic beauty. Making creatures, forms, geometrics and patterns out of a mere square of paper. Gives you inspiration to think of all the things you can do with other materials if Hilroy can become a lotus flower, box, or crane…
It seems designers have more than once picked up on this distinguished art, and applied it to their work. Pleating, definition and the creation of abstract forms seems to be a signature in Galliano’s work with Dior. Phillip Tracey makes glorious hats that borrow the sharp sophisticated edge from this refined oriental art. Gareth Pugh continues to shock and influence the fashion world with his formed bodices and surreal characterized models. Origami it seems can be interpreted so many different ways… from uptight, to fantasy.
