Origami Inspired


This coming fall trend is gearing toward minimalist movement, it’s about clean lines, structured and sharp shape. It defintely shiting away from the slouchy shape and the lace, ruffles details.

One detail that kept popping up on the fall 07 runway was the origami/paper folding detail. Christian Dior (especially Dior Couture), Marc Jacobs, Salvatore Ferragamo, Giambattista Valli, Christopher Kane, Proenza Schoeler, Donna Karan and other designers have employed this technique in their collections.

I haven’t seen the high street labels pick up this trend in here. It’s probably because this technique is hard to recreate on a computer or in a factory. Overall, I’m loving this trend….it gives the clothes a nice touch, still simple yet feminine at the same time. It’s also classic in a modern way.
