The focus of my work is the incorporation of three-dimensional sculptural forms into
the design of my garments while still maintaining the functional purpose of the garment.
Origami paper folding is the inspiration for the sculptural forms. The major endeavor was to
explore and solve the relationship between the organic human forms and the geometric forms
created by the origami paper folds. This presented a challenge of exact precision. During this
process, I experimented with different fabrics, which can accommodate the sharp creases and
retain the shape. A variety of folding patterns were also explored. Although the design should
be innovative and creative, the final garment must be wearable and comfortable.
Here’s what’s next.
