Lately, I’ve been in love with origami fashion and accessories, so I scoured the internet and came up with various current examples of the trend in the fashion world.
Andre Lima’s SS2009 collection was inspired by “Geometric Effects” but defintely resembles classic origami animals. (Images were found on Trend de la Creme blog)
Also from the runway, we have Chanel’s SS2209 Haute Couture collection. It took 40 people working 24/7 to create the 6000 paper flowers needed for the collection and the amazing headpieces were created by hairstylist and artist, Katsuya Kamo. The all black-and-white collection channels 1930s glamour, but with a modern edge. Bravo, Lagerfeld, bravo. (Images originally found from ViewOnFashion Magazine)
The Origami effect has also reached the red carpet:

And now for something completely different! USAtoday challenged Isaac Mizraahi to create an elegant dress from a stack of old newspapers. (Originally posted on Origami Sightings- Fashion)
And now that you’ve seen all these amazing designer origami creations, are you you yearning for your own origami fashion statements?
Take a look at this origami headband! It was posted on Burda Style and the creator also included a tutorial. Perfect for all those little fabric scraps!
This origami necklace was actually inspired by the tutorial for the origami headband. I decided that I had to have a necklace like this for my own, so I actually crafted one for myself. Super easy! I also added little black crystals to the centers of the origami squares to dress it up a bit. (Originally posted on BurdaStyle)
And now, just for fun!
And I just find this hilarious:
