Origami – The ancient paper folding art

When people hear of origami fashion, they may think that the garment is made by folding without any cutting or stitching. However, origami has also spilled into fashion wherein the art form is incorporated in quilting and pleating.

The Japanese word origami is a composite of ori (to fold) and kami (paper). Although origami is associated with the Japanese culture for more than thousand years, it’s origin can be traced to China – the birthplace of paper.

Origami as a fashion statement

Papermaking was established in China two thousand years ago, but the Chinese did not share this knowledge. It eventually found its way into Korea and reached Japan by the seventh century where the practice of origami expanded into an art form. Two highly artistic fashion designers, Issey Miyake and Charles James, influenced the origami fashion concept.

Issey Miyake is recognized for his unconventional designs and re-interpretations of traditional textile designs in variants of modern materials. Miyake’s work is an amalgamation of both his Japanese heritage and his training in Western couture that has redefined the concept of clothing and re-invention of the the activity of wearing clothes. His pleated creations are inspirational as they portray how modern clothes can be fun as well as high-tech.
