Beyond Stitches

Volume, texture, detail and visual interest make a piece stand out from the others. The way to achieve this does not only rely on threads and the tension given to them. Folds, crumples and layers can define new silhouettes and forms, such as that which is created by the japanese art of origami.

Tipically seen on dresses and other formal garments, origami-inspired treatments are artistic yet wearable new ways of expression. These can be conveyed as decorative details such as Hoss Intropia's dress or be part of the structure and overall fit such as Rachel Roy's and Marc Jacob's examples. To capture the spotlight while avoiding being overwhelming, these pieces are usually monochromatic or use a few coordinating colors, which emphasizes the fact that more than stitches meet the eye.
