ORIGAMI CHIC


We're seeing quite a bit of origami technique in the recent designer collections, including bridal. If I'm reading my Italian is correctly, Vogue Sposa is calling the bride in origami, ‘the unpublished chapter of bridal fashion.’ Originated in the east, origami fabric application consists of bending and starching fibers to take unexpected shapes and volumes. I like to think of it as a form of soft sculpture and indeed you'll find works of origami fiber art in museum collections allover the world. Take a look above and below. The look tends to be minimal and severe yet clean and pure all at once.
