Issey Miyake – Origami Collection October 27, 2010Posted by SCAD Fashion Department in : Inspiration, Manufacturers, Trends , trackback
For his latest collection, Issey Miyake worked with his R&D team to create apparel that expands from a flat, folded shape into a three dimensional garment when pulled from the top. Using a software program devised by computer scientist Jun Mitani, 3-D shapes are developed from a single, flat sheet of paper which is then translated into a recycled PET polyester garment by Miyaki’s team. The end result is not only beautiful, but mathmatically genius.
