Description

When origami merges with fashion design, the result can be functional as well as artistically pleasing (Choi & Choi, 2013). The intent of Origami Transformation was to create transformative fiber art that is inspired by the intersections of origami with art, textiles, fashion, mathematics, tessellations, and creative pattern cutting and is viewed in it's various stages. The desired qualities were (a) to create 3-dimentional sculptural geometric shapes using appropriate textiles, stitching, and patterning, (b) to transform these shapes into wearable dress utilizing the folding theories of origami tessellation and conical reverse truss model (Nakayama et al, 2013), and (c) to integrate the sculptural geometric shapes within the garments and accessories to present a well-designed ensemble. Origami Transformation's three collapsible items reflect the usable space available within the two felt sculptures and is intended to be viewed at the beginning and end stages as well as the transformative process itself.
