Geometry and fashion again - origami dresses

This amazing fashion designer is Diana Gamboa from Columbia who has been able to re-interpret ancient Japanese art of origami and to create these fabuluous dresses ... from paper. In her interview she also mentions that crochet is one of her favorite mediums but I could not find something as impressive by her done in crochet.

This is my favorite - last week I was leading workshop for teachers in exploring the space through design. This is wonderful example of that! Diana Gamboa says that she gets her ideas from her dreams, from her inner world. I wish there would be more beautiful geometric dreams.
