Cathleen Wolter's 'Hybris' photo set recalls the powdered wigs worn by the upper class during the French Revolution with these papercraft headdresses.

Implications - Modern couture designers are increasingly taking inspiration from the decadent fashion worn during the French Revolution, updating styles worn during the period with modern sensibilities. In this photo shoot, the photographer improved on the powdered wig by creating a headdress made of origami-inspired folded paper. The final product is a polished, futuristic take on the original.
