32 Origami Inspired Designs

— November 20, 2008 — Pop Culture
This jaggedly textured gown was a China fashion week highlight this month, combining not only shades that evoke images of China's beloved panda bear, but also hint at influence from Japanese origami.

When we first reported on origami-inspired fashion, we didn't really think the trend would go anywhere... but it certainly has. The Japanese paper-folding craft has inspired designers from North America to China.

The slideshow below shows a range of fascinating origami-inspired products, while the gallery above shows pieces from China Fashion Week.
